Abstract: The risk factors associated with medication errors in an internal medical unit of a Brazilian hospital were analyzed. A prospective, analytical, and exploratory quantitative study was carried out in a regional hospital, from March to May, 2014. One nursing assistant and 17 nursing technicians observed during the prescription, preparation, and administration of medications. The study observed 415 doses and 648 errors were found, organized into five main categories: preparation (29.47%), time (18.36%), and administration (42.12%), as well as 21 (3.24%) omissions and 44 (6.79%) dose errors. For every ten prescribed doses, eight resulted in errors, raising financial and personal costs. Quantitatively errors were related to risk factors of professional category, age, correct use of techniques, type of medication, and route of administration. The results helped identify the weaknesses in the medication system.
