COVID Drug Check Medication Safety Poster

COVID Drug Check Screensaver

Materials developed by NHS Specialist Pharmacy Services and adapted by HSE & Irish Medication Safety Network with permission from NHS SPS.

This guidance is to alert healthcare staff in hospitals to undertake additional checks of medication labelling and packaging due to the increased use of products staff may be unfamiliar with. 

The concentration or volume of medication in each pack may differ from products usually used.  There may also include unfamiliar brand names in use therefore the importance of checking the approved generic name is emphasized.
