Title
(EN) MEDICATION DISPENSING CART
(FR) CHARIOT DISTRIBUTEUR DE MEDICAMENTS
Abstract
(EN)
A medication dispensing cart (10) having a computer and monitor (12), a work surface (16) with pull out keyboard (18), and plural drawers (30) arranged as a vertical series of cassettes that can be added as needed. The battery powered device uses software and pass codes for controlling access to each drawer, and requires a second pass code for any drawer designated to contain narcotics. Records can be kept of who dispenses what medication and when for each cart in a system of carts. The cart in the system is in wireless communication with a system administrator. Emails alerting the system administrator of low battery power, of a cart switching to off, of an attempted break-in, and of inventory and usage data are sent automatically by email.
(FR)
La présente invention concerne un chariot distributeur de médicaments (10) comportant un ordinateur et un écran (12), une surface de travail (16) avec un clavier escamotable (18) et plusieurs tiroirs (30) disposés sous forme d'une série verticale de cassettes pouvant être ajoutées selon le besoin. Le dispositif alimenté par batterie utilise un logiciel et des codes secrets pour contrôler l'accès à chaque tiroir, et demande un second code secret pour tout tiroir contenant des narcotiques. On peut garder une trace de la personne, des médicaments qu'elle distribue et à quel moment pour chaque chariot d'un système de chariots. Le chariot du système est en communication sans fil avec un administrateur système. Des courriels prévenant l'administrateur système de la faiblesse de la batterie, d'un chariot s'éteignant, d'une tentative d'intrusion et de données d'inventaire et d'utilisation sont envoyés automatiquement.
