To differentiate medicines with similar names and avoid dispensing errors, consider:

  • Creating sundry labels to automatically print when the medicine is dispensed:
    • Use F6 Sundry Label on the prescription entry screen (F1 Help on editing the label lists formatting options)
      • Attach appropriate sundry labels on page 3 of medicine stock cards
      • Perhaps add the packaging colour to the sundry labels

  • Attaching relevant labels to the places where the medicines are stored (boxes/baskets/shelves)
  • Using specifically coloured highlighter on labels (e.g. orange for NOVORAPID) to emphasise the packaging colour
