    ISMP’s List of Error-Prone Abbreviations, Symbols, and Dose Designations

    The abbreviations, symbols, and dose designations found in this table
    have been reported to ISMP through the ISMP Medication
    Error Reporting Program (MERP) as being frequently misinterpreted
    and involved in harmful medication errors. They should NEVER be used
    when communicating medical information. This includes internal
    communications, telephone/verbal prescriptions, computer-generated
    labels, labels for drug storage bins, medication administration records,
    as well as pharmacy and prescriber computer order entry screens.
    The Joint Commission has established a National Patient Safety Goal
    that specifies that certain abbreviations must appear on an accredited
    organization's “do-not-use” list; we have highlighted these items with a
    double asterisk (**). However, we hope that you will consider others
    beyond the minimum Joint Commission requirements. By using and
    promoting safe practices and by educating one another about hazards,
    we can better protect our patients.

    My philosophy for communication:
    Always assume the best and friendliest interpretation of my words that you can, I have no reason to be a rude dude at all, except you force me to!
