Urgent Needs

 

Pharmacy Project (Acudose and Pacmed System) - $373,976

To invest in our C Ward, ICU, OBS, OR and Pharmacy Departments by supporting our Pharmacy Project, click the donate now button on the right.

The AcudosePharmacy Project will benefit the patients served in the following departments of WLMH; C Ward, Intensive Care Unit, Obstetrics, Operating Room, and Pharmacy. 

This system allows for each patient to have their own secure medication drawer, with ONLY those doses that the nurse needs, in a format that is as close to ‘ready to use’ as possible.  This minimizes the potential for dispensing errors when pharmacy is preparing the thousands of doses required each week.  In addition to improving efficiency significantly, this system also facilitates inventory management of medications for first doses in a controlled way that is safer than the manual ward stock option.

The implementation of this system will build safeguards into the drug distribution system at WLMH for increased patient safety.  It will also assist WLMH in meeting the required Accreditation Canada standards for managing medications. 

Medication safety.....one patient at a time.
