Rice Memorial Hospital, Willmar, Minnesota
In this rural hospital, medications were securely stored but not linked to patient profiles, creating the potential for errors. In addition, manual cartfills were inefficient.
The facility added Omnicell’s SinglePointe™ software to their automated medication dispensing cabinets. By enabling all of a patient’s medications to be managed through the automated dispensing cabinet, the system creates a closed-loop distribution process that greatly reduces the risk of medication errors and streamlines medication management.
Rice Memorial achieved these benefits:
- Significant decrease in medication returns and credits (82% reduction1)
- Less time spent pulling, checking, and restocking medication (55% reduction1)
- Improved nursing satisfaction.
