Patient Safety First
At the Erasmus MC, patient safety is one of the most important focus areas. To increase and ensure patient safety, the Erasmus MC has implemented a Safety Management System for high-risk medication.
Mediclabel plays an important role in the Safety Management System: it generates specifically designed barcode labels that are applied to all medication before they are administered to patients.
Mediclabel helps the nurses in anesthesiology to prepare parenteral drugs in observance of the Safety Management System protocols. Dave Gonlag, nurse anesthetist at the Erasmus MC: “Mediclabel helps us to ensure that the correct substance is prepared in the right concentration and in the right manner. It complements the guidelines on parenteral administration set forth in the Quality Information System.”
