Dennis Tribble, Chief Health Offer for Health Technologies issued a statement recently urging hospitals to explore available technology that could greatly reduce pharmacy errors. Many hospitals still require their pharmacists and IV technicians to rely on manual calculations and hand-written lables, instead of taking advantage of technology like barcode scanning. Tribble also recommended that more checks and controls be added to the daily routine of IV rooms.
