One aspect of medication safety that we strongly promote is the importance of having a current updated list of medications that you are taking, including Over-the-counter drugs, supplements and herbals. You can use the Universal Medication Form for this purpose. It makes it easier for the physician and healthcare providers to have accurate information and aids in the reconciliation process that is one of the best practices to help prevent or minimize adverse drug events. Please keep this folded in your wallet and with you at all times; fill one out for every member of your family who takes medications.
