Background: Incorrect medication administration risks errors and patient harm. The aim of this study was to test the reliability of the newly developed medication administration evaluation and feedback tool.
Methods: An observational, fully crossed design using recorded scenarios in a simulated environment was used to test reliability and agreement of an evaluation tool for nurses administering medications.
Results: Intrarater and inter-rater reliability observed agreement overall were 84% and 82% with Fleiss Kappa coefficient 0.72 and 0.68, respectively. Overall intrarater and inter-rater reliability of the tool rated as good.
Conclusions: The medication administration evaluation and feedback tool is reliable in a simulated environment.
