Abstract

The accuracy of pharmacy technicians versus pharmacists in checking drug doses prepared in syringes for a dialysis program was studied. Three pharmacy technicians from the pharmacy of a regional kidney diseaseprogram in Minnesota participated in the study after completing a training program and after common preparation errors had been identified by pharmacists. From November 1995 to April 1996, the technicians usedlabels printed from a database of pharmacist-verified orders to prepare and label i.v. syringes. Four medications were used-epoetin alfa, calcitriol, heparin prepared from beef lung, and heparin prepared from porcine intestinal mucosa. Each syringe was checked by one of nine pharmacists for accuracy of dose and medication, and all errors were recorded. The technicians checked syringes prepared by other technicians and also recorded errors. Accuracy rates (percentages of syringes correctly evaluated) for pharmacists and technicians were compared. A totalof 10,608 syringes were checked. Accuracy rates for pharmacists and pharmacy technicians were 99.86% and 99.83%, respectively. Accuracy rates in checking syringes did not differ significantly between pharmacists and technicians in this study setting.
