White Paper on bar coding in a healthcare setting announced

As every healthcare professional knows, it’s essential to follow the five rights of medication dispensing and administration – the right patient, the right drug, the right dose, the right route and the right time.

 

Within every facility, systems are instituted to ensure these “rights” are achieved.  Bar codes play an important role in the success of such systems, but many people don’t know how bar codes work, or which bar code options are best for their systems.

To help healthcare professionals better understand bar coding, Medi-Dose and EPS have released a White Paper on “Bar Codes and Bar Code Scanners for Unit Dose Medication in a Healthcare Setting”, which is available at MediDose.com/barcoding.
This White Paper explains how bar codes work, the types of bar codes and scanners that are available and how to determine the best equipment & bar code options for your unit dose medications.
For over 45 years, Medi-Dose / EPS has been working with pharmacists and nurses to develop cost-effective solutions that promote medication safety and error prevention.  Please visit the web site at www.medidose.com
