Abstract or Summary

This integrative review examines research identifying the misreading of injectable medications as a cause of medication error in hospitals, factors affecting injectable medication visibility leading to medication errors, and interventions to increase the readability of injectable medications. Signal detection theory (SDT) is applied to explain why visual enhancement of injectable medications may improve accuracy of administration.
