The nurse is reconciling the medications with a client who is being discharged. Which of the following indicates there is a “discrepancy”?
1. There is agreement between the client’s home medication list and current medication prescriptions.
2. There is justification for a difference in the medication prescriptions.
3. There is lack of congruence between a client’s home medication list and current medication prescriptions.
4. Sample medications have been included in the medication list.
The medications prescribed for, administered to, or dispensed to the client while under the care of a health care organization are compared to those on the list, and any discrepancies (eg, omissions, duplications, potential interactions) are resolved.
A complete list of the client’s medications is communicated to the next provider of service when a client is referred or transferred to another setting, service, practitioner, or level of care within or outside the organization.
The complete, accurate list of medications is also provided to the client on discharge from the organization. The next provider of service checks the Medication Reconciliation List again to make sure it is accurate and in concert with any new medications to be prescribed.
