Uppsala University Hospital is one of Sweden’s largest hospitals, offering medical and nursing care of the highest standard. They make the best use of new technology, new scientific findings and new ways of working in order to solve medical problems and to continuously improve the way they take care of their patients.
One day, the staff at the Pediatric Emergency Ward discovered that the seal of the morphine packaging was broken. Simultaneously, a pediatric patient didn’t receive the anticipated analgesic effect. The Compounding Unit of Uppsala University Hospital acted quickly and used their drug verification system DrugLog™ to generate crucial information, not only for the conversation with the parents about the incident, but also for the subsequent report to the police.
