Clarify Ambiguous Abbreviations

There are over 55,000 medical abbreviations...and misreading or misunderstanding just one of them can lead to confusion or harm.

For instance, a note that says a prescription is "RTS" could mean refill too soon...or return to stock.

And an Rx for "MS" for magnesium sulfate could cause a deadly overdose if it's mistaken as the opioid morphine sulfate.
