What is unit dose packaging (blister packs)? Unit dose packaging is a method of preparing medications in which individual doses of patient medications are prepared by the pharmacy and delivered in individual labeled packets.
The intent of this packaging method is to decrease administration error. Taking multiple medications daily can be confusing and unsafe if one doesn’t remember what medications were already taken or perhaps still need to be taken. Our blister packs are divide by “morning”, “noon”, “evening”, and “bedtime”. This way, one can see what medications have been taken or missed.
Are you a good candidate for Unit Dosing (blister packs)?
Unit dosing is helpful to those with hand arthritis or who have trouble opening bottle after bottle of medication.
Unit dosing may make the difference between independent living and assisted living. Often, independent seniors take many medications which can not only be confusing but also can be difficult to open and administer. Having your medications unit dosed can allow you to maintain your independence instead of hiring help or moving into assisted living.
