Medication dispensing

  1. 0
    With all the new technology we now have, I find myself overwhelm especially with dispensing medication. We have bar coding and I find that some of the medication does not have any barcode and need justify before it can be given to patients. Also I find the medications are dispensed from too many places( ie main pharmacy, satellite pharmacy, and electronicdispensers. I find myself giving meds all day to 6-7 patients for 12 hours. I work in 20 bed unit. I have been a nurse for 30 years and thought it would be easier now but I find it more taxing. I thought going high tech will be easier but it is more difficult and I have stayed long hours after work which I never did before we went high tech. Any ideas???
