What Are Drug Named Labels?
Drug named labels are used on syringes and drug infusion bags to enhance patient safety and reduce medication errors. Medical professionals use drug named labels to identify which drug is contained in the syringe or container to ensure proper dispensing.
Common Drug Named Label Uses In Healthcare
Drug named labels, such as Buprenorphine and Demerol®, communicate important information to the medical staff. For example, labels include a blank space to fill in the strength of the drug as well as space to write the date, time, and initials of the person preparing the medication. Other versions include labels with pre-printed common medication strengths, the date the solution was prepared and the expiration date and time.
