Leading-edge innovations in medication processes, harnessed with strengths of our expert pharmacy staff, ensure the safe delivery of medication for patients at KVH Hospital.
Automated dispensing machines
serve as large central pharmacies with a computerized bar code inventory management system. Clinical benefits include allergy checking, customized dispensing alerts, automated monitoring of refrigerated drugs, medication removal, and simplified IV component dispensing. This system greatly reduces the risk of medication errors and ensures security of the medications.
Hospital Life Care Infusion
utilizes a "smart" pump technology for drugs that are given intravenously. This system confirms the accuracy of the drug, dose, patient, time, and route. Medication errors at bedside can be prevented before an adverse drug event occurs with this technology.
Medication managing software
streamlines the medication order process and simplifies the filling of medication orders. Utilizing this technology also enhances the speed and accuracy of medication or physician orders between the nursing unit and central pharmacy.
