Omnicell Controlled Substance Dispenser

Spend Time Caring, Not Counting

Tedious narcotic counts at the automated dispensing cabinet keep nurses away from more important tasks. Omnicell offers the leading fully automated unit dose dispensing system, which eliminates the need for countbacks and the time it takes to resolve discrepancies.

The Controlled Substance Dispenser stores medications in a secured area in the automated dispensing cabinet and dispenses each dose into a special drawer where nurses can easily access it.

  • Simple and fast controlled substance workflow saves hours of nursing time each day

  • Saves pharmacy time spent resolving discrepancies

  • Discourages diversion and increases security of controlled substances
