Nursing and medication safety

Nurses work with the entire care team to coordinate patient education, discharge planning, team coordination and case management.

Nurses use Barcoded Medication Administration (BCMA), a handheld barcode scanner to scan the patient's armband and scan each medication to be administered, which is documented in the electronic health record system. This ensures the patient receives the correct medications while improving efficiency and patient safety.
