An award-winning, FDA-approved Class II medical device
Patients are counting on you, count on Safe Label System!
Medication errors are happening right now…somewhere. Maybe your facility has not been touched by this preventable tragedy, but you probably know of a hospital that has. Meeting and exceeding compliance has been extremely difficult. But it is finally within our reach to end medication labeling errors…forever.
Codonics Safe Label System ( SLS )
Safe, compliant, fast medication labeling — anywhere medications are prepared
Codonics Safe Label System (SLS) is an award-winning, FDA-approved medical device that improves the safety and accuracy of medication management, integrating worldwide recognized best practices and international standards. A complete solution to enhance patient care, SLS uses barcode technology to read information from a drug container and electronically verify it against the hospital’s pharmacy-approved formulary database at the point of care.
Where SLS is used
The system integrates with both manual and smart anesthesia drug carts (ADCs)* in the OR, enabling it to be conveniently situated as part of the anesthesia workflow. SLS is also widely used in the ICU, for patient care on the floor and at the bedside, and in the pharmacy.
Improve patient safety
Problems associated with mislabeling and mishandling of medications continue to adversely affect hospitals and surgical facilities. Drug labeling requires time and vigilance, and is prone to human error. For example, in the OR, anesthetists are met with competing demands, coupled with the challenge to handwrite the required drug information in a legible manner on a very small area. SLS uses barcode technology to read information from drug containers and empowers you to label any medication, anywhere in your facility, with a compliant label.
Workflow eliminates medication errors and improves compliance
When a drug is scanned on SLS, the clinician is immediately presented with audible and visual confirmation of the drug and concentration in hand, providing an electronic “double-check”, a safeguard that ensures the medication selected is the intended medication. The system then automatically presents a TJC-compliant, easy-to-read and ready-to-apply label that meets ASA guidelines, eliminating the need for handwriting and ensuring safety, accuracy and compliancy.
