Individually Locking Bins Solve One of The Most Critical Problems in Healthcare
Medicine safety demands that healthcare providers give their patients the right medicines in the right doses at the right times. One of the top 5 most common medical mistakes is medication errors, and considering the importance of properly medicating patients in regard to patient outcomes, it is certainly an alarming statistic.
Phoenix LTC offers bins that lock and unlock individually. This feature gives everyone in your facility peace of mind, as it provides more security and traceability of specific medications. Also, our bins are made of strong steel not puny plastic that’s flimsy and can easily be compromised.
During the dispensing process, bins that unlock individually drastically reduce access to other meds stored in the same cart, mitigating 2 of the most critical medication-related concerns in healthcare – diversion and dispensing errors.
Individually locking bins decrease both legal and financial risk to healthcare facilities by helping to lessen medication errors that occur at the meds dispensing cart. This leads to improved patient outcomes, a notion reinforced by Johns Hopkins. The organization published data on the subject of medical errors, which were then ranked the 3rd leading cause of death in the United States, accounting for 10% of lost American lives from any cause.
