Put Relabelled Rxs Back Through the Bagging Process
You play a major role in preventing errors during bagging and checkout...to ensure the right patient gets the right drug.
Errors often happen when putting meds and paperwork into a patient's bag...or selling correctly bagged Rxs to the wrong patient.
Let's say Janet Smith, who is pregnant, accidentally gets Janice Smith's methotrexate Rx. If she ingests the yellow methotrexate tabs, thinking they are her yellow folic acid tabs, there's an increased risk for miscarriage or birth defects.
