Objective: To standardize the classification, reporting and analysis of medication errors in nursing in order to achieve real-time monitoring and systemic analysis in patient safety management and improve the level of safety management. Methods: The problems in the existing classification medication errors in nursing were identified according to the International Classification of Patient Safety (ICPS). Results: The new medication error classification standard included all significant statistical information in the reporting system, which reduced the category related errors in the reporting and contributed to the standardization of data analysis and targeted improvement strategies. Conclusion: The establishment of medication errors classification standard based on ICPS can help nursing administrators to accurately detect the system- and process-related defects from multiple perspectives and propose targeted improvement measures and thereby to improve the level of patient safety management.
