Risk factors for early prediction of adverse drug events related to hospitalizations

Abstract

The prevalence of hospital admissions because of possible adverse drug events (ADEs) vary from 0.56% to 54.5% in Brazil. In addition, nearly 43% of inpatients may develop adverse drug reactions (ADRs) during their hospital stays. Clinical outcomes arising from drug-related problems are almost never identified by health professionals because the signs and symptoms are nonspecific and may mimic pathologies.
