Incorrect Value and Wording

JAMA. 2000;283(10):1293. doi:10.1001/jama.283.10.1293

In the Caring for the Critically Ill Patient article entitled "Pharmacist Participation on Physician Rounds and Adverse Drug Events in the Intensive Care Unit" published in the July 21, 1999, issue of THE JOURNAL (1999;282:267-270), there was an incorrect value in a table. On page 269, in Table 2, the number of total patients days for Phase 1 in the Study Unit should be 1061 and not 787 as listed. In the "Results" section on the same page, the statement that 300 mg 3 times per day is the correct oral dose of phenytoin is erroneous. It should read "Examples were a recommendation to reduce an excessive dose of intravenous phenytoin from 300 mg 3 times per day to 100 mg 3 times per day. . . ."
