[Research Presentation] This cross-sectional study was conducted the nurses from medical center, the questionnaires complete (97.7%), The study showed: (1) possible causes of medication errors ranked top three were two drugs with similar names, illegible handwriting and physician prescribing the wrong dose. (2 )they estimated that (69.04%) of all drug errors were reported to the nurse manager by the completion of an incident report. (3) they recalled 2 medication errors in average making over the course of their career. (4 ) the nurses' perceptions about medication errors, drugs errors and incident report showed significance with age, clinical ladder, year of RN practice, work settings, and frequency of medication errors. This study showed the nurses knew when they must report the incident, but they also were afraid of ámedication errors in average made over the course of their career, and medication errors were not serious so they didn't report them, and the nurses' perceptions about medication errors and incident report action were different. So we hope this study can be used in programs designed to promote recognition of medication errors, and also provide the nursing administrator information to pay attention to the nurses' perceptions of medication errors issues.
