I am wondering how other nursing programs are automating their medication administration in the lab setting. We have 2 MedDispense machines that we use as a pyxis/ominicel. Due to the size of MedDispense, we do not roll it over to the bedside. We are exploring ways to ID the patient, possibly without purchasing more equipment. I've begun to look at QR barcodes and free apps. I am curious if there are any creative ways you have developed to scan at the bedside - would love to hear ideas. Thanks.
