Use Strategies to Ensure Meds in ADCs Are In-Date
Pharmacies are looking for ways to keep expired meds out of automated dispensing cabinets (ADCs).
It's a real challenge. In fact, one hospital recently reported that about 1 out of every 100 doses in its ADCs are out of date.
This puts patients at risk of receiving expired meds...leaves hospitals and pharmacies vulnerable to citations from The Joint Commission, state boards, etc...and creates costly med waste.
