  A 45-year-old woman is hospitalized for management of Staphylococcus aureus endocarditis with persistent
bacteremia. The patient is discussed during interdisciplinary rounds, which includes physicians, nurses, pharmacists,
and social workers. During rounds, a pharmacy student notices that the patient missed two doses of her scheduled
antibiotic last week but is unsure why. The physician and nurse are unaware of these missed doses, and the student
does not mention her observation. Which of the following measures is most likely to improve communication within
this interdisciplinary health care team?
(A) Conduct interdisciplinary rounds in a quieter location
(B) Encourage questions from all team members
(C) Implement a checklist for standardizing patient rounds
(D) Use computers during rounds to review medications

UW said to use automatic system to prevent errors in medication so I went with D.

  Man... in hurry I'm not reading questions right... what a disaster...

Rereading it, the student noticed something and didn't alert anyone so obviously encouraging of questions would help students speak up.

:((((( what an easy question.
