IHS Packaging Options
With our state-of-the-art compliance packaging system provided by AmerisourceBergen, each inmate will receive a small box containing a roll of med packs. Each individual pack is clearly marked with the inmate’s name, your facility name, and a description of its contents (this includes the name, strength, and a physical description of each drug).
- Your staff tears off the pack for the designated med pass and delivers it to the inmate. It only takes a few seconds to confirm the pack’s contents. No more sorting out medications from bottles or blister cards.
- Since all medications are contained in one pack, you drastically lower the risk of giving the wrong medication at the wrong time. Easy-to-read packs help you administer with greater accuracy.
- Fewer errors means fewer liability problems and reduces the likelihood of costly legal actions.
- A better medication administration program means less overhead and more money to operate your facility. IHS Pharmacy offers the most cost-effective way to dispense inmate medications.
Blister Card Packaging
We offer the traditional blister cards for those that prefer them. With a blister card, a single medication is packaged, usually in a 30-day supply, on a “blister card” with a patient label on the card. If a patient is on multiple medications, the patient will have multiple blister cards!
