DrugLog ® – enhanced patient safety in a few seconds
In healthcare environments, large quantities of medication pass through the system each day. But can you be absolutely sure that the products are legit and manufactured by the medical companies, or could they in fact be counterfeit medication? DrugLog ® provides the answer in a few seconds.
Counterfeit medication is produced and sold to deceive the customer by trying to represent the original pharmaceutical. The package and labeling may look the same, but the actual drug often contains too low quantities of the active ingredients, no active ingredients whatsoever or harmful versions of the original pharmaceuticals.
