Improve Patient Safety With Accurate Medication Administration

Medication administration can be time consuming and also present opportunities for error. With Zebra mobile computer and barcode scanning solutions, nurses can scan the patient's wristband and their medication to confirm a match, ensuring the right patient receives the right medication at the right time.

Reduce Errors

Lessen the possibility of human error by making sure staff can access the most current data about patients and their medications.

Streamline Processes

Zebra's mobile devices move you from manual processes to electronic barcode medication administration. Save time and costs by eliminating the need for additional paperwork.

Increase Accountability

Caregivers can scan the barcode on their ID badges, creating an automatic audit trail that increases accountability.
