Abstract
Three consecutive wrong route administration errors are described in detail and the ease by which enteral preparations can be given by the wrong route is discussed. By introducing the use of purple oral liquid dispensers in our pediatric department, we hope to prevent and reduce the risk of similar medications errors in the future and to improve patients safety.
