98,000 Deaths Annually

An estimated 98,000 hospital deaths occur annually from medical errors.  These mistakes carry with them approximately $37.6 billion in additional charges, including $17 billion associated with preventable errors. While there have been many piecemeal approaches to patient safety, a total solution has remained elusive, in part due to the lack of standardized benchmarks for comparing the performance of healthcare professionals. USP 797 is a far-reaching regulation that governs a wide range of pharmacy policies and procedures. It is designed both to cut down on infections transmitted to patients through pharmaceutical products and to better protect staff working in pharmacies in the course of their exposure to pharmaceuticals.
