More Than 20 Free Tips - Use Your Medications Safely

I like to keep an eye out for superbly written drug resources. This is a wonderful collection of more than 20 tips on safe medication use from the Institute for Safe Medication Practices (ISMP), "General Advice on Safe Medication Use." The tips are categorized in the following way . . .

  1. At Home. For example, make a list of medications you are taking now, or ; any time that your medications change, change your list, too.
  2. In The Hospital. For example, take your medications and the list of your medications with you when you go to the hospital, or ; after your doctor has seen them, send your medications home with your family.
  3. At The Doctor's Office. For example, take your medication list every time you go to your doctor’s office, especially if you see more than one doctor, or ; ask your doctor to explain what is written on any prescription, including the drug name and how often you should take it.
