Abstract:  The Institute for Safe Medication Practices (ISMP) first conducted a national medication safety self-assessment for U.S. hospitals in the year 2000. In 2004 the assessment was updated and released once again for U.S. hospitals. This presentation will present preliminary results of the 2011 update of ISMP’s self-assessment which was conducted in the late summer and fall of 2011. A background of the assessments, comparisons of the 2004 to the 2000 results and new preliminary comparisons of the 2011 results compared to 2004 results will be reviewed. Emphasis will be placed on the safe use of high-alert medications and safe processes that will assist participants with setting medication safety goals for their organizations.
