You'll see increasing efforts to eliminate dangerous abbreviations from prescriptions.

The worst offenders are: U...IU...QD...QOD...trailing zeros on doses...lack of a leading zero for doses less than 1...and the drug abbreviations MSO4 and MgSO4.

In fact, hospital and care facilities in the U.S. must meet new mandates that outright ban using these abbreviations.
