Topic(s): , ,
Project Lead: Ira Moscovice

Adverse drug events (ADEs) are the single largest category of hospital-acquired conditions (HACs), accounting for 34.2% of HACs in 2011. Medication safety in small rural hospitals is an important rural health policy. With this project, we will identify rates of ADEs and opportunities to improve patient safety in Critical Access Hospitals (CAHs) and non-CAH rural hospitals.
