Install is almost complete.... So many issues have been brought to my attention. I am curious to know how narcotic inventories are done in other facilities whom utilize automated dispensing machines on inpatient wards.
Currently in the middle of a huge rip and replace of old pyxis system, to upgraded pyxis ES. Very tough to facilitate all the movement these days. I am interested in any views or opinions on Pyxis ES by nursing whom may be utilizing the system or have found issues with it in the past. I get several inquiries daily about documenting waste and correcting discrepancies. I would like to hear about cases in which this was an issue and what was advised to fix them. More to see how other facilities handle certain issues. Ie: user entry, discrepancies, waste, documentation, corrections, nursing inventories of controlled substances, audits, and types of transactions that require a witness.
Please feel free to share your experiences with any automated medication device. Any information may create better processes in the future.
Thank you for reading and responding
