This video introduces the UCSF Medical Center’s robotic pharmacy, which is designed to ensure that the right patient gets the right medication at the right time, reducing the chance of medication error and, in the case of IV medicines, of contamination. The goal is to relieve pharmacists of the mechanical aspect of the practice, freeing them up to make sure patients get the right medication.
