Medication Management and Safety
It currently takes 22 separate steps from the time your physician writes a medication order until you physically receive the medications in your hospital bed.  Most of the current processes are manual.  
The Listowel Wingham Hospitals Alliance is currently working with 8 other Hospitals in South Western Ontario to both improve our medication management and distribution processes and build in safeguards.  Computerized medication orders, automated dispensing cabinets, and bar-coding of patients and medications are all part of this initiative.  Our new process will involve approximately 8 steps.  This work will ensure all patients receive the right medication, in the right dosage, at the right time.
