One of the greatest drains on a nurse's time is the tedious narcotic counts at the automated dispensing cabinet – and the inevitable recounts needed to resolve discrepancies. Not only does this task keep a nurse away from patient rooms, but it also contributes to congestion at the cabinet, which puts other nurses behind.
The OmniDispenser™ unit dose dispensing system provides a unique, highly efficient solution for dispensing medication such as controlled substances that virtually eliminates the need for nurses to conduct countbacks.
True Unit Dose Dispensing System
The OmniDispenser module stores medications in a separate, secured location in the automated dispensing cabinet and dispenses each dose individually, similar to a vending machine. Nurses only have access to the specific quantity of items requested.
- Manual countbacks to confirm remaining inventories of controlled substances are all but eliminated, saving hours of nursing time each day.
- By electronically tracking each dose, the system also spares nurses from additional manual documentation.
