Abstract
(EN)
A container (104) for pharmaceutical items, comprising a tray (108) having at least one compartment (112) adapted to retrievably contain at least one pharmaceutical item, each said compartment (112) having associated therewith a lid (114) movable between a closed position restricting access to the associated compartment (112) and an open position permitting access to the associated compartment (112), and each lid (114) having associated therewith a mechanism responsive to control signals from a computer (106) to permit movement between the closed and open positions. The invention also includes a system for dispensing pharmaceutical items comprising at least one support structure (100) supporting at least one drawer (102), each said drawer (102) being adapted to receive at least one of the above described containers (104) and being movable with respect to said support structure (100) between an open position permitting access to a given compartment (112) of a given container (104) and a closed position restricting access to all containers (104) in each said drawer (102); and at least one computer (106) operable to control access to each compartment (112) in each container (104). The invention also includes a method of controllably and securably dispensing pharmaceutical items comprising, storing pharmaceutical items in locations (112) identifiable by a computer (106) and to which access is controlled by a computer (106), inputting data identifying a desired pharmaceutical item, and having said computer (106) identify a location (112) having the desired item and issue appropriate control signals to permit access to the desired item.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un récipient (104) destiné à recevoir des articles pharmaceutiques, lequel est constitué d'un plateau (108) comportant au moins un compartiment (112) conçu pour contenir et extraire au moins un article pharmaceutique, le compartiment (112) comprenant un couvercle (114) que l'on peut déplacer d'une position fermée interdisant l'accès audit compartiment (112) à une position ouverte permettant d'accéder audit compartiment (112), chaque couvercle (114) étant équipé d'un mécanisme répondant aux signaux de commande transmis par un ordinateur (106) lui permettant de passer de la position ouverte à la position fermée et vice versa. L'invention comprend également un système de distribution d'articles pharmaceutiques constitué d'au moins un support (100) pouvant accueillir au moins un tiroir (102), chaque tiroir (102) étant conçu pour recevoir au moins un desdits récipients (104) et pouvant coulisser par rapport au support (100) entre une position ouverte autorisant l'accès au compartiment (112) d'un récipient donné (104) et une position fermée interdisant d'accéder à tous les compartiments (104) de chaque tiroir (102), ainsi qu'un ordinateur (106) que l'on peut exploiter pour commander l'accès à chacun des compartiments (112) de chaque récipient (104). L'invention comporte également un dispositif de distribution d'articles pharmaceutiques sûr et que l'on peut commander, lequel consiste à ranger des articles pharmaceutiques dans des emplacements (112) identifiables par un ordinateur (106) et dont l'accès est piloté par celui-ci par introduction des données permettant d'identifier l'article pharmaceutique voulu, de sorte que ledit ordinateur (106) identifie l'emplacement (112) de l'article voulu et transmette les signaux de commande appropriés pour autoriser l'accès à l'article voulu.
