Abstract: Missed and delayed medicine was the second largest cause of medication incidents. The focus of the Respiratory Institute (RI) has been on the provision of education and documentation of missed medications for all reasons. In order to give RI patients the highest level of care, an established target value for missed medication administration due to valid reasoning was established and collected data  used to create a standard for those who administer medication.  The purpose of this study was to determine a target percentage of missed medications due to valid reasoning.
