Background

CHALLENGE

The children with complex chronic conditions usually need to take dozen of different medications via multiple routes during the treatment. So it is quite possible to forget or make mistakes, which sometimes is dangers. A well-organized medication administration tool can help manage the medication easier and prevent medication errors. 

A Caregiver's Missions on Medication:

  • Reading the label and following the instructions for each medication

  • Watching for side-effects, such as confusion or dizziness, and calling the doctor or home care nurse with any changes in the patient’s condition

  • Reminding the patient to take the medications at the right time and in the right dose

  • Help patients to take medication through different route, like oral, G-tube and subcutaneous.

  • Add notes, and track patients' conditions.
