  • Using it to prevent lasa errors

    Hope all well? Is there IT software in place, to prevent LASA errors?

    Not sure how IT would drive this.
    If you are suggesting scanning codes then you need to consider is the coding that you are scanning being validated for that purpose?
    If you are an IT supplier then my consultancy fees are quite reasonable.

      Are you aware of how the current pharmacy software companies provide any help in pharmacy practice , to prevent LASAs errors from occurring already?

      e.g if i typed in Ropinerole 4mg MR tablets, to be labelled, the PMR could alert the pharmacy team, to be careful not dispense its LASA, ie: Rispiridone 4mg tablets?

          Thanks, like quinine and quinidone etc. I agree bar scanning best way of checking. Particularly, if barcode also on label and original script.

              You mean a pop-up message?
              This would add to the alert fatigue.

              I'm not sure if telling people not to mix up one drug with another is a good idea, especially naming the drugs.
              This may create unwanted associations in the mind of the dispenser who then starts to mix them up where they would not have done so before.

              There are some ideas around about using IT to achieve this but they have a commercial consultancy value so they are never published on forums.

                  Yes, very good idea and far simpler to implement. Manufacturers could adopt for their labels. Too many pop ups in PMR already.
