Dispensing oral narcotics and medications of abusive potentiality requires stringent controls.
Medications must be rigidly accounted for and protected throughout the hospital dispensing system. Complementing its line of TampAlerT tamper-evident syringe caps for luer lock syringes, the new EPS TampAlert Tamper-Evident Cap for Metric Only Oral Syringes helps pharmacists and nurses provide this protection for oral medication.
Each cap contains a white syringe cap protected by a bright red tamper-evident “break-away” sleeve. Once attached to the syringe, the cap can only be removed when the outer sleeve is broken. These closures are ideal for morphine and other oral anesthetics, controlled substances and chemo meds.
“We’re always looking for ways to help pharmacists and nurses streamline their practices but maintain control and protection over the meds they dispense," says Bob Braverman, director of marketing fpr Medi-Dose, Inc./EPS, Inc. “Our lines of TampAlerT Tamper-Evident Caps for Oral Syringes, Oral Dispensers and IV syringes help practitioners accomplish this while providing an easy and economical way to dispense liquid and IV meds. They increase accuracy and efficiency in medication administration”
