Abstract or Summary
  • Unit dose drug distribution systems have been established in a number of hospitals during the past several years. Such systems show promise in providing better and safer patient care. They also seem to minimize the non-professional aspects of drug handling by nurses, thus enabling them to spend more time with their patients. Many hospital pharmacists have become interested in unit dose systems, but have been overwhelmed with the problems of collecting all the operational details and procedures which have been published. The present study is intended to help hospital pharmacists by providing guidelines and procedures for the establishment of unit dose drug distribution systems in smaller hospitals. In order to lend validity to the guidelines, an experimental system was developed and implemented on a 30 bed unit in a 185 bed hospital. Considerable detail is presented regarding the operational problems and varieties of forms and equipment. An evaluation of the experimental system indicates that it reached the desired objectives for pharmacists, nurses, patients and the hospital administration. The guidelines and procedures based upon this study should be of considerable help to other hospital pharmacists contemplating unit dose drug distribution.
