Medication reconciliation is monitoring a patient’s medication history and current medications. During medical reconciliation, errors may arise that pose a risk to patients and their safety. These errors include the patient not being able to recall all of the medications prescribed, recalling the wrong medications, and clinicians not being thorough enough in their evaluation of the patient’s medication history. Adverse drug events may result due to medical reconciliation not being done correctly. To avoid errors in the medication reconciliation process, there must be a thorough evaluation of medication reconciliation, and the process must be compared with best practices. Analyzing the many steps in the process and recognizing where improvements can be made will allow patients to feel more comfortable with their medications and for the healthcare system to design a more appropriate protocol for completing the process.
