This 5 hospital system began the Bar-Code Medication Administration Project (BCMA) in January of 2005 with a matched grant from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ). The implementation of the project was completed in 2007. The project was a collaboration of nursing, pharmacy and information systems. The focus of the initiative was to streamline medication administration, improve the process of positive patient identification and to enhance patient safety. All medication dispensed from pharmacy include a barcode. The electronic medication administration record match the medication entered into the system with the individual patient identification armband. Nurses use a PDA to scan patients and their medication to assure the 5 rights are confirmed, and electronically document the medications administered. This presentation will review the current literature base and best practice recommendations related to BCMA and patient safety. The process of implementation and the implications for nursing and pharmacy will be discussed. It will describe the new process for medication administration and the change in the clinician workflow. Outcomes include a dramatic increase in nurses scanning patient medication and a decline in medication administration errors. An overview of lessons learned will be discussed and data supporting enhanced patient safety will be shared.
