You learn all kinds of things.
At the hospital the entire time there, they had a new system with their medication. They use these scanners now, I know they were the Symbol LS2208 scanners. They now scan the patient then the medication with the codes that are on the medicine. Its really neat and a better system on keeping the medicine going where it needs to. That way a patient doesn't get overmedicated or to the wrong person as its in the persons chart and if a medicine gets scanned out of the file to the wrong patient, its alerted to the pharmacy. Its pretty cool.
