Spanish Auxiliary Label to Avert PCA-by-Proxy Errors
Labels & Packaging Supplies

Medi-Dose, Inc/EPS, Inc announces the release of a series of free Spanish language auxiliary label images calling attention to the fact that only a patient should control a PCA medication. The Joint Commission has issued a warning regarding the administration of PCA medication by those other than the patient or authorized health care professionals. As stated in a recent Sentinel Event Alert, serious adverse events can result when family members, care- givers, or clinicians who are not authorized, become involved in administering analgesia for a patient “by proxy.” The labels can be printed using the company’s MILT 3.0 software and its Mini- LiquiDose laser and thermal labels.
