prevent medication errors related to unusual dosing schedules (weekly, monthly, etc)

You're in a prime position to prevent medication errors related to unusual dosing schedules (weekly, monthly, etc).

The key is knowing what to look for.

Medications. Watch for meds that usually have out-of-the-ordinary dosing. Duragesic patches are usually used every 3 days...Vivelle-Dot twice a week...Nascobal once a week...Risperdal Consta every two weeks...cyanocobalamin (vitamin B12) daily, weekly, or monthly...Boniva once a month...and Femring every 3 months.
