Bar coded, bedside medication verification will improve patient safety in today’s health systems, and in recent years, technology vendors have released many products to help health care providers find a means to that end.

Patient Safety: The Ultimate Goal

Patient safety is very important to our facility. When a hospital implements bar coded medication administration, they are not doing so to save money or time; you implement this kind of system to improve patient safety.

FMC Pharmacy uses a fully automatic unit dose packaging machine with packaging speeds up to 60 units per minute. Our system uses thermal transfer printing to allow easy readability of text, and accurate scanning of barcodes.
