Medication Mishaps: A Hidden Danger in ASCs

Ambulatory Surgery Centers (ASCs) face a unique challenge with medication management. From improper storage to potential mix-ups to expired drugs, the risks can be serious for both patients and the facility's reputation. Traditional paper logs are often inadequate, leaving ASCs vulnerable during audits or in the unfortunate event of a medication error.

The Problem: Where Things Can Go Wrong
  • Inventory Chaos: Overstocked medications can expire. Without a centralized system, tracking inventory levels, expiration dates, and proper disposal is inefficient and error-prone.

  • Security Concerns: Controlled substances require meticulous logging to prevent misuse or diversion. Paper records are easily misplaced or falsified.

  • Dosage and Administration Errors: In the fast-paced surgery setting, handwritten logs can be illegible or overlooked, leading to incorrect dosages or medication mix-ups with potentially harmful consequences.
