Background & aim: Drug misuse is defined as inappropriate administration or usage of drug which can be preventable. The aim of study was to identify the consistency rate of drug record information between cardex and patients medical cards in teaching hospitals of Yasuj, Iran Methods: The present descriptive sectional study was conducted in teaching hospitals of Yasuj in 2012. Case Sampling was convenience sampling. A number of 400 patient’s charts were selected and drug orders were compared with cardex and drug patient’s cards. Statistical analysis was performed by SPSS software and descriptive tests. Results: Of 400 charts, only 1670 charts had drug orders and there were a total 337 of drug errors in cardex and drug cards. The highest rate of inconsistency of drug details was related to entering drug routes into cradex and drug cards that were reported 41% and 43.2 % respectively. In addition about 5% and 23.4% of administrated drugs were not recorded in cardex and drug cards. It is also indicated that 1% and 2.5 % of deleted drug orders in the chart were not deleted in cardex and drug cards. Conclusions: There are relatively large numbers of inconsistency cases of drug details between cardex, drug cards and patient’s charts. It is necessary to clarify the issue, and also performed new methods of drug registration in the hospitals.
