Look-alike/sound-alike drug list

January 5, 2011

In 2010, the look-alike/sound-alike requirement (NPSG.02.02.01) was moved to the standards and can be found at Medication Management standard MM.01.02.01, EP 1: 

The hospital develops a list of look-alike/sound-alike medications it stores, dispenses, or administers.
Note: One source of look-alike/sound-alike medications is The Institute for Safe Medication Practices

View the ISMP's List of Confused Drug Names.

The Joint Commission Web site no longer maintains a look-alike/sound-alike medication list; please refer to the ISMP Web site referenced above for a current list of look-alike/sound-alike medications.
