Minimize Med Errors With Safe ADC Use
You'll be asked to help optimize safety with automated dispensing cabinets (ADCs).
Focus on ADC (Omnicell, Pyxis, etc) overrides. Unsafe overrides are an ISMP top 10 med error...and safe use is a new ISMP best practice.
In a recent case, verapamil was mistakenly overridden and given to an agitated COVID-19 patient...instead of Versed. And a previous mix-up with Versed and vecuronium led to a patient's death.
