    Who really cares if someone "higher up" knows what our finger print looks like. In GA, we are fingerprinted when we get our drivers license.

No biggie to me. After having Pyxis at one hospital and then changing jobs to a hospital that still hand counted narcotics every shift - I LOVE THE PYXIS

    i like the old pyxis just fine. and who has time to use the drug guides? like said above, it's impossible cause someone always wants in for meds. so it's not been a helpful feature to me. i always have to use the books anyhow. sounds like a waste to me. the old one works great for security.

    How can they guarantee your prints won't be accessable by the FBI? They have their ways.......

    I really love the Pyxis but I wish instead of fancying up the Pyxis they'd spend the money on an extra one for each unit. The lines do get long at times.

    I MISS a pyxis!!!!!!!! My old job had the password/then the fingerprint kind.

    Once in a while a draw would get stuck....but it's nothing like counting and using a narcotic sheet. It takes 10 minutes to count...and another 10 minutes to find out who forgot to sign out something.
