Product News: New Label Color for Medication Requiring Special Handling

Medi-Dose® has created bright yellow Lid-Label® Covers for use with our Circular and Oval Medi-Cup® Blisters.

Clearly identifying medications that require special handling, such as those covered by USP <800>, is important for the safety of staff and patients. To assist in these efforts, Medi-Dose® has created bright yellow Lid-Label® Covers for use with the company’s Circular and Oval Medi-Cup® Blisters.

Medi-Dose/EPS works with pharmacists to develop cost-effective solutions that promote medication safety and error prevention. Like all of the company’s Lid-Label Covers, the new yellow covers provide a tamper-evident and moisture resistant seal.

When printed with the company’s MILT® software, 1-D or 2-D bar codes, graphics, special fonts, tall man lettering, shapes, logos and symbols (such as bio-hazard, NIOSH, etc.) can be utilized to further highlight important dispensing information and minimize the potential for medication error.

“We’re always working to improve the medication packaging experience for pharmacists while helping to reduce errors”, Robert Braverman, President of Medi-Dose, said in a prepared statement. “These new labels demonstrate our commitment to helping you maintain the safety of your patients and practitioners, while maximizing the efficiency of your practice.”
