Medi-Dose, Inc. / EPS, Inc. Partners with Emily Jerry Foundation for Pediatric Safety Initiative

Problem:  Because of their small size, pediatric patients are particularly vulnerable to medication errors. An error that might have minimal effect to an adult could be catastrophic to a child. 

Solution:  To help promote awareness of this issue, Medi-Dose/EPS is working with the Emily Jerry Foundation to incorporate their Blue Angel warning logo into our MILT 3.0 software. 

The Emily Jerry Foundation is determined to help make medical facilities safer for everyone, beginning with our babies and children. The foundation focuses on increasing public awareness of key patient safety related issues and identifying technology and best practices proven to minimize the "human error" component of medicine. 

Facilities using Medi-Dose’s MILT 3.0 can now download the Emily Jerry Foundation Blue Angel warning logo and add this image to their printed unit dose labels, calling attention to medication requiring special care and handling. Separate auxiliary labels with the Blue Angel can also be created. In addition to its inclusion in MILT, this important warning symbol will soon be available preprinted on any of our LiquiDose labels. 

"Accurate labeling of medication has always been an issue for pharmacy and nursing", says Bob Braverman, Director of Marketing. "We encourage facilities with our MILT software to start using the Emily Jerry Foundation Blue Angel logo on labels for all medication types. It’s our desire that this will increase awareness of pediatric dosing and the need for increased safety procedures for the most vulnerable patients in hospitals - our children".
