SYSTEMS FOR THE IDENTIFICATION OF DRUGS IN HOSPITAL: MCD SYSTEM
LABELKIT MCD MODULAR CARTRIDGE AND DISPENSER SYSTEM
AVOID ADMINISTRATION ERRORS!
They facilitate the identification of drugs used in critical areas such as the Operating Room, the Post-Anesthesia Recovery Area, Intensive Care, etc. by applying colored labels.
The color of the label identifies the drug class and makes it easier to identify the contents of the syringe.
The Labelkit MCD project
According to recent statistics it has been proven that over 20% of the accidents that occur in the case of anesthesia are caused by the exchange of syringes .
For this reason the Labelkit MCD system has been studied.
Labelkit MCD is a system consisting of dispensing cartridges of pre-printed labels for the identification of the drugs contained in the syringes to be administered to patients.
The individual cartridges, in recyclable polypropylene, contain about 600 labels and can be assembled together to compose one or more dispensers of the desired size and with the labels chosen from the list of those available. The dispensers can be used directly on the shelf or hung through the rear openings.
The labels are cataloged according to a standard international color code proposed by the American Society of Testing and Materials, subcommitee D4774-94, which allows rapid identification according to the action of the drug itself. This color code has been adopted as a standard by the Anesthesia Societies in Great Britain, France, Australia and Canada.
This system guarantees greater safety in anesthesia!
A syringe identification system such as Labelkit MCD is required by certification bodies for the accreditation of operating rooms and the achievement of quality certificates.

Labelkit Operating Rooms
By standardizing each operating room with a Labelkit MCD system, the risks associated with the exchange of syringes and therefore the risks associated with anesthesia are reduced.

Developed in collaboration with some important Lombard hospitals following the recommendations of the Ministry of Health.
Labels to improve safety in the management of ONCOLOGICAL drugs.
They take advantage of the simplicity and speed of the Labelkit MCD system and the advantage of the color code.
Developed in collaboration with some important UFA centers and Lombardi ONCOLOGICAL departments.
