more focus on ensuring the right patient gets the right med

You'll see more focus on ensuring the right patient gets the right med...following on the heels of the recent methotrexate error.

Methotrexate is used for chemotherapy, arthritis, etc. Giving it to the wrong patient can cause birth defects, liver damage, and death.

In the most recent case, a pregnant woman received another person's methotrexate...and took one dose before the error was caught.
