Abstract

The nursing professional plays an important role in the safety of the person under his/her care and specifically regarding the adequate supply of medications. For this reason, this research established the objective of determining trends in scientific research regarding the administration of medications by the nursing professional. To achieve the objective, we used the documentary research methodology with a qualitative and hermeneutical approach, carried out on 50 scientific documents in the area of nursing and health sciences from Latin America and Spain between 2003 and 2019. The documents reviewed They were selected in an Excel database and from there common criteria were established that allowed the establishment of analysis categories: a. Incident reporting protocols for medication administration; b. Knowledge and training of the professional for the safe administration of medications; c. Institutional standards and protocols for the safe administration of medications; d. Promotion of patient safety in the administration of medications and e. Distractions, errors and omissions in the administration of medications. Conclusions: errors in the administration of medications occurs when the health professional has distractors during the process of both the enlistment and the administration of medications such as: staff in charge, non-compliance with protocols established by the institution, excessive responsibility, fatigue and fatigue.
