- Jan 23, '00 by shee1aWe use a computer system. Everyone of our meds including IV fluids have a bar code (like at the supermarket) and we scan them. Its a cool system. We scan, the computer tells us if we have the 5 Rights, u know right drug, right patient, right time etc.
It also does the I/O at the same time.Scan a IVPB that is 100 cc it also documents it on the I/O piece of the computer.
