This system is convenient and easy to use and can also allow residents to handle their own medications easily giving them greater independence. Packs are arranged in four columns across for the doses of the day (e.g. Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, Bedtime) and seven rows down for the days of the week (i.e. Monday to Sunday). Each Multi-Dose pack is also printed with a clear digital coloured photograph of the resident; Resident's name, date of birth, room number, and more. On the reverse there is a print out of all medication names, directions, dosages, and a brief description.
This system is easy to use and can be used by all staff. The packs are placed in different coloured frames chosen to symbolise the time of the day i.e. pink for breakfast medication, yellow for lunch medications, orange for dinner medications and blue for night medications. Each Unit-Dose pack is also printed with a clear digital coloured photograph of the resident; Resident's name, date of birth, room number, and more. It also comes with the names and images of each packed medication and alerts such as 'Do Not Crush'.
