New Jersey Hospital Protects Patient Safety with Advanced Pharmacy Automation Solution
Date:7/9/2009

Swisslog's PillPick automated drug management system revolutionized the way hospital pharmacy prepares, dispenses and returns medications.

Denver, CO (PRWEB) July 9, 2009 -- For more than 80 years, Holy Name Hospital in Teaneck, N.J., has provided healthcare excellence, compassionate medical and nursing care, and introduced technological advances in patient care. Continuing with its tradition of "first-rate patient care," Holy Name Hospital installed Swisslog's PillPick® automated drug management system.

The PillPick automated drug management system reduces medication errors by limiting the number of hands each dose must pass through to get to the patient. PillPick dispenses over 5,000 unit doses daily to Holy Name's 360 beds. The PillPick system's integrated components automate packaging, dispensing and storage while minimizing human intervention. The packaging modules prepare unit doses from bulk stock, and can over-wrap vials, cups, ampoules, syringes and blisters.

PillPick's DrugNest storage module at Holy Name is designed to hold 35,520 unit doses with expansion capabilities of up to 44,400 unit doses. The doses are simultaneously stored and dispensed into first doses and cart fill, streamlining the inventory management process. The patented PickRing assembles unit doses onto a flexible ring for 24-hour patient administration, cassette fill or for dispensing cabinet restocking. At Holy Name, bulk tablets and capsules are loaded into PillPick and packaged into unit dose bar-coded bags. Unit doses are then assembled into PickRings for patient administration. The rings are stored in a carousel, handpicked and delivered to the patient.

Since its installation in September 2007, Holy Name's PillPick drug management system revolutionized the way the pharmacy prepares, dispenses, and returns medications. Pharmacy Director, Rosario Lazzaro, MS, RP said,
