What types of medication errors are included in the Medicaid SAE policy?

0

Any medication related SAE that is associated with increased costs to the Medicaid program may be included in this policy. This includes medication related SAEs resulting in the need for treatment, intervention, initial or prolonged hospitalization, patient harm resulting in transfer to a higher level of care, any cardiac/respiratory arrest, death (including those not the direct result of a medication error), and known drug-drug interaction. The policy excludes adverse drug reactions that are not the result of a medication error.
