According to a hospital director surveyed recently by KLAS, “Our nurses are so happy with the Omnicell OmniRx that it is unreal. The cabinets are really working great. The guided-light technology is a plus. Some of our nurses are using Anywhere RN, and they are really pleased with it as well. A couple of nurses have told me that they like that the narcotic waste, witnessing and other things are much more streamlined.”
