    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    An example of a risk-related activity is administering high-risk medications. Which of the following is an example of safety check to address this?

    • A.

      Independent double check

    • B.

      MAR-to-MAR check

    • C.

      Both

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    C. Both
    Explanation
    Both administering an independent double check and performing a MAR-to-MAR check are examples of safety checks to address the risk associated with administering high-risk medications. Administering an independent double check involves having two healthcare professionals independently verify the medication and dosage before administration. On the other hand, a MAR-to-MAR check involves comparing the medication administration record (MAR) with the medication label to ensure accuracy. Both of these safety checks aim to minimize the risk of medication errors and ensure patient safety.
