Let's take a look at your rights.
- The Right to Be Treated with Respect.
- The Right to Obtain Your Medical Records.

These 6 rights include the right patient, medication, dose, time, route and documentation. Futhermore, nurses are also urged to do the three checks; checking the MAR, checking while drawing up medication and checking again at bedside.
To help reduce the risk of medication errors, nurses are taught the “Five Rights of Medication Administration.” Also known as the "5Rs”, these principles help to ensure the right drug, right dose, right route, and right patient, at the right time.
To ensure safe drug administration, nurses are encouraged to follow the five rights ('R's; patient, drug, route, time and dose) of medication administration to prevent errors in administration.

To decrease medication errors, we propose a sixth right of medication administration: the right response. For medication administration to be effective and error free, a significant amount of critical thinking must occur on the part of the person administering the drug.
