MSOS would like to thank those who responded to the recent survey we sent to members who listed their role as a full-time or part-time medication safety officers (MSOs).  The survey was intended to determine the bed size of the hospitals MSOs in which they work. 

Based on a response rate of 21%, there was roughly an equal percentage of MSO’s who categorized the bed size of their facility as 151-300 beds, 301-450 beds, 451-750 beds, over 750 beds, and at the hospital system level. A very small percentage of MSOs (4%) worked in hospitals of 150 beds or less. Based on this survey, most MSO’s who are members of MSOS work in hospitals above 150 beds, and the majority do so in a full-time capacity.
