Medication safety structure - adequate?

Greetings, The question about med safety structure has been asked many times before but I have a new spin on it -

If you are satisfied with your med safety resources, can you explain your structure/roles? Please include the size/number of facilities, and types of duties.

If you feel you need more med safety resources, what are you lacking? What would make it better?

I am a medication safety pharmacist for a 12 hospital system plus ambulatory/speciality pharmacies/health plan. I can confidently say we need additional structure for med safety and have my own thoughts but hoping to hear from you all. -good or bad.

Feel free to reach out directly if you prefer.
