Vilke GM, Tornabene S, Stepanski B, et al. Prehospital emergency care : official journal of the National Association of EMS Physicians and the National Association of State EMS Directors. 2006;10:457-62.

The researchers surveyed paramedics and found that 9% made medication errors in the past year and that unfamiliarity with the drug, dosage mistakes, and a lack of triple checks played a role in the incidents.
