Avoid Covering up a Bar code With the Rx Label

You'll see more focus on using bar codes to prevent medication errors...due to another mishap.

In this latest case, Xarelto was dispensed instead of Vesicare. The bar code wasn't scanned because the Rx label was placed over Xarelto's bar code. As a result, the wrong med went home with the patient.

Turn this error into a lesson learned.
