Unit Dose Done Right – Medi-Dose and EPS

The requirements of USP <800> prohibit the use of automated packaging for hazardous medications. Fortunately, the Medi-Dose® unit dose system has been designed to be the easiest, fastest, and most cost-effective way to unit dose and bar code your inventory. Because of its unique cold-seal technology, the Medi-Dose System is simple to use, requires no special in-service training or additional space, and can be an essential part of your USP <800> compliance plan. The finished package provides tamper-evidence, ultraviolet inhibitance, moisture protection ... and even one-year beyond-use dating! There are 15 different styles of blisters, including MULTI-PURPOSE and JUMBO blisters for multiple meds, large tablets or capsules, MINI blisters designed for saving space in medication bins, and OVAL blisters for a variety of dispensing cabinets. Medi-Dose’s MILT® software provides complete medication identification and bar coding capabilities for all your labeling needs ... solids, liquids, syringes, ampules, IV’s, and equipment. MILT compares newly entered and previous saved medication names to the CDC NIOSH List of Antineoplastic and Other Hazardous Drugs in Healthcare Settings. If a match is found, the user is notified that this medication may potentially be hazardous to handle. Clearly identifying medications requiring special handling, such as those covered by USP <800>, is important for the safety of your staff and patients. To assist in your efforts, Medi-Dose has created bright yellow Lid-Label Covers for use with all of our Medi-Cup Blisters. Like all our Lid-Label Covers they provide a tamper-evident and moisture resistant seal.
