Bingo Cards/Unit Dose Packaging
- Bingo cards…
- Blister Cards…
- Unit Dose…
These are all terms that can be used to describe how most medications are packaged in the Long Term Care arena.
Each medication is individually packaged and labeled by dose. If the dose is only 1/2 tablet, that will be what is in each slot. If it is 2 tablets, you will find two. By doing this, Best Buy Drugs can help your staff to speed up medication admin passes by not having to split tablets, or pull from multiple slots. We can also label each individual card by the time of day it should be given to help staff organize your cart more efficiently. Ask us how we can improve your medication passes through specialty packaging and on-site reviews.
Medisets are ideal for patients who need a little extra assistance with medications, but not full nursing management. Our State of the art medisets are organized by time of day, all medications are together and ready to take without the need to fumble with multiple bottles or bingo cards. Our medisets can also come with perforations that allow for an individual time of day to be torn off and travel with you without the bulk of the entire week’s worth of medication. Ask us today how to begin receiving your medications in medisets!
This style of packaging allows for multiple medications to be placed together, but without the bulk of the mediset style packaging we also supply. Each medication has an individual label to track all of the information you will need to identify and administer accurately and with confidence. Organized in 1 week cards (Monday to Sunday), each column is used for a time of day (morning, noon, evening, bedtime) to easily find the day and time your patient needs.
In addition to traditional pharmacy services, Best Buy Drugs provides specialized services to meet the complex needs of our patients in order to help them achieve their healthcare goals. Our staff has years of expertise in dealing with challenging issues such as medication compliance, insurance billing, delivery and shipping, and supportive care.
