ABSTRACT
The article reports that pharmacists are now being hired for hospital emergency rooms (ERs). Patient safety is critical in a fast paced environment and ER doctors often work without patient history information. The National Center of Health Statistics states that hospital emergency rooms have the highest avoidable prescription errors. Some hospitals have found that ER pharmacists are able to evaluate and recommend proper medications and dosages very effectively. The ER pharmacists comprise a very small percentage of ER teams at this time.
