Oconee MC Aims to Eliminate Errors with Bedside Medadmin

Oconee Medical Center, a 169-bed facility in Seneca, S.C., is implementing San Diego-based IntelliDOT Bedside Medication Administration in an effort to eliminate all serious five rights-related medication administration errors, says the company.

The IntelliDOT System at Oconee interfaces with the hospital’s McKesson hospital information system (HIS) and McKesson Star pharmacy system.

The results of medication administration observations both pre- and post-IntelliDOT BMA implementation show that Oconee Medical Center has reduced five rights-related errors (wrong patient or wrong medication) to zero. In addition, by automating the medication administration process with IntelliDOT BMA, nurses won’t need to contact the pharmacy as often with questions, the company touts, and pharmacy can significantly decrease order turnaround time.
