What Are Dose Administration Aids?
Dose Administration Aids help people be more organised when it comes to their medications. It also aims to prevent incorrect dosages and ensure medication has not been tampered with.
Greg Keily Chemist uses a state of the art tablet packaging robot (one of only seven machines in Australia) to provide one of the best examples of dosage administration aids. This high tech machine sorts tablets and capsules into easy to use blister packs. It sets out all of the tablets and capsules that need to be taken into different times of the day, for each day of the week. This groundbreaking technology helps us to provide a medication management system to patients and nursing homes to allow them to easily manage their medication.
Many of our blister packs are distributed to local nursing homes, aged care facilities and hospitals. We also provide nursing homes with another type of dose administration aid called MPS Packettes. These are small plastic packets which contain the appropriate medicines for a particular date and dose time. Information relating to the name of the patient and the drugs and dosage contained inside is printed on the packette itself.
