The most important activity of a pharmacy is the delivery of the right medication; making medication administration a crucial task. Pharmacies need to work accurately and check activities during the entire medication process. To make sure the right patient receives the right medication, pharmacies can make use of barcodes.
Check, check, check
The medication is checked three times in the pharmacy before it is given to the client. When the medicine is taken from stock, a label with barcode is placed on both the recipe and the package of the medicine, to ensure the right dose is in the package. The second check occurs to ensure that the right medication is issued for the right client, again by scanning the barcodes. Both the recipe and the drug are scanned again to make sure the right client physically receives the right medication.
