Prevent medication errors
in Oncology thanks to
You’re an oncologist or pharmacist
in a chemotherapy reconstitution unit and you’re concerned about:
Chemotherapy preparations carry high risks for patients and healthcare professionals due to the highly toxic nature of anticancer drugs.
It is therefore crucial to ensure that pharmaceutical compounds are prepared under optimal conditions, and that they scrupulously respect medical prescriptions.
Facing legal risks:
The occurrence of a medication error during treatment can have serious consequences not only for the patient’s health, but also legally for the practitioner and hospital – both could face financial or criminal sanctions including being disqualified from practice.
It is therefore crucial to be able to provide irrefutable proof of the quality of your work.
Aside from the media and the financial impact caused by an unprevented medication error, having to recreate an expensive anticancer molecule can lead to major cost overruns (compulsory destruction of the defective preparation, overconsumption of medication stocks, time spent preparing new compounds, etc.).
At a time when hospital budgets are increasingly limited, being able to prevent the error before it occurs, prove it using a reliable method, and thus prevent excess production costs represents a major economic advantage.
