The dispensing cabinets are extremely user-friendly and have advantages for both the user and the pharmacy:

The Emergency Department and the Chest Pain Unit, the Surgical Unit and the Recovery Room were equipped with:

• A Dispenser, controlled by Pharmalogic Dispenser software.
• E-Lock cabinets and a refrigerator lock.
Each department will determine the content of its own automatic dispensing cabinets but in practice almost all medication (for the department) is stored there with the exception of transfusion products.


The dispensing cabinets are extremely user-friendly and have advantages for both the user and the pharmacy:
• The packaging used for different medicines is often very similar. Using dispensing cabinets means that mistakes are virtually eliminated while safety is increased.
• Improved management and continuous stock control in the decentralised pharmacy.
• Communication with the Hospital Information System
• Effective monitoring of consumption, which also means no loss of the data required for invoicing.

"Safety has improved because mistakes have been virtually eliminated."
