In a nutshell: The authors explored the factors contributing to medication administration incidents amongst registered nurses. A number of factors, including the environment and characteristics of the nurse, were found to influence medication administration incidents. In terms of environment, clinical workload and work setting were important. In terms of nurse characteristics, nurses’ lived experience of work and their demographics were significant. More studies have focused on environmental issues than on how personal characteristics may contribute to incidents. Any inter-relationship between factors was not explored.
