There are 4 types of errors related to medication.

Knowledge-based errors—for e.g. providing penicillin, without knowing whether the patient is allergic or not.

Rule-based errors—such as, injecting diclofenac tube into the lateral thigh of the patient rather than the buttock.

Action-based errors—e.g. choosing a bottle containing diazepam from the pharmacy when needed to take one having diltiazem.

Memory-based errors—like, providing penicillin, knowing the patient to be allergic, but still forgetting this fact.
