Motorola Medication Administration Solutions
Without mobility and bar coding at the point of care, there are
many steps in medication administration that are not only time
consuming, but also present many opportunities for error. With a
Medication Administration solution, nurses can scan the patient
wristband, the medication and their own ID card in seconds, ensuring
that the right patient receives the right medication, the right
dose, by the right route, at the right time. Medication
Administration Solutions from Motorola and our partners enable
nurses to administer medication more quickly and accurately, helping
to avoid costly errors.
