Medication without harm. Because the purpose of prescribing medication is to cure, halt, or prevent disease or ease symptoms, it seems like an obvious statement. Yet medication errors occur with thousands of patients each year in both inpatient and ambulatory settings. Further, the National Academy of Medicine estimates that 7,000 deaths occur annually due to preventable medication errors. Effective medication labeling is one way to combat adverse drug events. United Ad Label carries an extensive selection of anesthesia labels and flag labels for vials and syringes that help healthcare workers with effective medication dispensing.
