Patient Safety Tool: Medication Error Reduction Scorecards

The Institute for Safe Medication Practices is a nonprofit dedicated to educating patients and the healthcare community about safe medication practices with free resources, consulting and research.


The High-Alert Medication Modeling and Error-Reduction Scorecards identify systemic and behavioral risks associated with high-alert medication and help estimate, given current institutional practices, how often adverse drug events or medication errors are occurring. The HAMMER tool contains fives scorecards, each focused on a different type of prescribing or pharmacy error.

Register and download the cards for use in your facility.
