The Zero Harm Patient Safety leaflet is part of a Tallaght University Hospital Zero Harm patient safety initiative, focussed on reducing medicine-related harm through innovation and public information.
Adverse drug events can lead to profound and devastating effects on patients and their carers, in addition to prolonged and more intensive hospital care. Tallaght University Hospital is tackling this by focusing on a series of initiatives to help improve medication safety. This leaflet is part of that initiative, with the ‘My Medicines’ leaflet patients can document a list of their current medicines and supplements.
This is their record of their medicines. The record should be kept up-to-date and brought with them when attending Tallaght University Hospital or any healthcare appointment. If they become ill, they or a member of their family can bring this record to hospital. Please encourage your patients to use this leaflet and share with any family members or carers of patients you think might benefit from its use.
