In 1996 the Institute of Medicine launched the Quality Chasm Series, a series of reports focused on assessing and improving the nation’s quality of health care. Preventing Medication Errors is the newest volume in the series. Responding to the key messages in earlier volumes of the series— To Err Is Human (2000), Crossing the Quality Chasm (2001), and Patient Safety (2004) —this book sets forth an agenda for improving the safety of medication use. It begins by providing an overview of the system for drug development, regulation, distribution, and use. Preventing Medication Errors also examines the peer-reviewed literature on the incidence and the cost of medication errors and the effectiveness of error prevention strategies. Presenting data that will foster the reduction of medication errors, the book provides action agendas detailing the measures needed to improve the safety of medication use in both the short- and long-term. Patients, primary health care providers, health care organizations, purchasers of group health care, legislators, and those affiliated with providing medications and medication- related products and services will benefit from this guide to reducing medication errors.
I was hoping to see a post from you this morning and I’m anxious to know how you are feeling. BNOP was the first blog I ever started reading several years ago so I feel like I know you. I am so sorry you had to go through being so sick while traveling. I know you love travel and love your independence but I really think it would be much better if you could develop a travel companion. Being as sick as you were, it’s hard to made decisions for yourself & a companion could help. I really think you should have been transported to a hospital instead of the ship bringing a doctor in. Worried about you and hoping you are doing better and if you aren’t home that you will be soon.
I’ve seen them leave that same comment on other blogs, too…so they’ve been scraping our content, even from blogs like mine where the content was truncated, posting it in full on their website and telling Google they were the original source/author.
The result is, if you Google the words “Between Naps on the Porch and Bloglovin” and look at the “Images” tab in google, you’ll find a lot of my photos that when clicked take you to Bloglovin and NOT to my blog, the original source. So Google thinks Bloglovin was the source of those images.
