Abstract

Mubasheera MG**, Dr. Raju Koneri*, Balakeshwa R*

ABSTRACT

Objective: To collect, review and audit the community based prescriptions. The study aimed to verify whether the community based prescriptions were in accordance with the prescription guideline. Materials and method: This study involved the collection of prescriptions prescribed by the private practitioners at four different locations in Bangalore. The prescriptions were reviewed and audited for physician information, patient information, and drug information and for the general content of the prescription. Results: Among 100 prescriptions audited, the physician name was not found in 22% of the prescriptions and 24% of the prescription did not have physician registration number and qualification. The physician contact detail was not seen in 25% of the prescriptions and the physician missed to signature in 22% of the prescriptions. The physician missed to note the patient’s name, age and sex in 22%, 66% and 68% of the prescriptions respectively. In 25% of prescriptions, the dates of consultation were not entered. Surprisingly, 95% of the prescriptions had no status on refilling and 33% of the prescriptions were illegible. Additionally, in 96% of the prescriptions the drug name was not written in capital letters. Other drug details such as brand name, dose, formulation, frequency, strength and instructions to the patients was not mentioned in 22% to 25% of the prescriptions. Conclusion: The majority of the prescriptions in community failed to comply with the guidelines. There is a need to standardize the prescriptions in India so that all essential information is included and will be helpful for the better patient care.

Keywords: prescriptions, pharmacovigilance, community.
