The sample in this study were 150 recipes. Using the instrument, check the observation sheet for counting medication errors. There are 5 stages of problem solving in the Six Sigma method, they are define, measure, analyze, analyze, and control. The value of the service performance prescription value, yield = 92.98%, defect = 6.54%, meaning that the service performance of prescription of RSI Sultan Agung outpatient pharmacy unit which still gives the opportunity for the emergence of medication error is 6.54%.
