This study evaluates the impact of decision support to improve documentation of height and weight as a means to prevent medication errors. We developed a real-time expert system rule that calculates age-specific limits and provides an alert if the value entered is outside these limits. We compare data before and after the implementation of the rule, demonstrating a significant reduction of errors.
