Abstract:
Purpose:
The purpose of this project was to improve the process for documentation and education in the administration of vaccines.

Methods:
A review of the current process conducted by the Medication Safety Committee analyzed existing deficiencies and identified patterns of vaccine errors. A multidisciplinary taskforce consisting of medicine, pharmacy, nursing and Computerized Patient Record System (CPRS) services developed a standardized process for vaccination documentation. This template automatically updates CPRS vaccination records, standardizes the vaccine names, documents lot numbers, sites of injection and provides an immediate electronic VIS (Vaccine Information Sheet) for patient and staff education.

Findings:
Facilitation of standardized documentation of vaccinations is expected to reduce vaccine related medication errors. Easily accessible education regarding vaccinations will enhance patient and staff education.

Discussion:
Vaccines are an effective and proven way to decrease morbidity and mortality in the veteran population. Numerous errors were observed with vaccines due to a multitude of factors including lack of consistent documentation and deficiencies in education. Particular incidents reported by the Medication Safety Committee, alerts from ISMP (Institute of Safe Medical Practice) and CDC data allowed identification of current deficiencies in the vaccination process. Standardized documentation and continual education practices for increased awareness and familiarity of vaccination processes will improve the vaccination administration process contributing to patient safety and quality of care.
