Find a medication error example where a healthcare professional administered an incorrect dose via parenteral administration. Describe sources of error from the example you found and why there was an increased risk to the patient. Discuss ways that parenteral risks can be avoided and what methods should be approached to ensure that errors do not occur. What would be an appropriate recourse for when an error in dosage occurs? Explain your answers.

For your citation, you might use articles that show examples of calculating different forms of medication. You can also find articles from experts that address best practices for calculating liquids for parenteral administration.
