Abstract

Objective: This study aimed at analyzing drug-related problems (DRPs) in hospitalized geriatric patients with diabetes mellitus.
Methods: We prospectively collected data of 26 hospitalized geriatric patients at the Gatot Soebroto Army Hospital (age, >60 year) who underwent
inpatient treatment for at least 1 month between February and April 2015. Readable data were obtained from prescriptions, medical records, and
index card/nurses records. We obtained data on 299 drug treatments for 26 patients and identified 166 DRPs. These were analyzed based on the
Pharmaceutical Care Network Europe Version 6.2.
Results: The percentage of treatment effectiveness (50.6%) and adverse drug reactions (49.4%) was predominantly due to an inappropriate drug–
drug or drug–food combination, including the incidence of drug interactions (20.4%).

Keywords: Adverse reaction, Drug-related problem, Gatot Soebroto Army Hospital, Geriatric, Treatment effectiveness.
