NexsysADC Secure Dispensing Cabinet

Automated dispensing cabinets (ADCs) have been available for a couple decades, but Capsa Healthcare’s NexsysADC is different; it was designed for long-term care. Practical in size, price range, and scope. NexsysADC is accessible for even small volume homes (or behavioral health and hospice too) — not just large hospitals. Compact cabinet that controls the onsite storage and distribution of medications (especially narcotics) and high-value supplies. At all times, pharmacies stocking medications and nursing managers controlling the removal of medications know what doses are inside each NexsysADC cabinet, which nurse is accessing them, and what medication dose is getting to which patient. Each transaction is visible and trackable via cloud connection.

Safety-It’s all in the Details!

We are creating safety posters for each department. These posters will have many safety fails in them, to be spotted by our staff. Each department will prepare their space with some safety issues that are frequently spotted in their areas. Staff will submit their entries for best poster, and point out the safety fails.

Fears and Solutions

The Fears and Solutions initiative is about starting a dialogue. Using a blank poster to fill out, staff and students are asked two questions: “what are you afraid of?” and “what are you going to about it?” By writing their answers to each of the questions on a poster, staff work together to come up with solutions to common fears. A proactive, welcoming environment is formed.

Changing the Culture with Civility Three Cs

In Health Care incivility among coworkers/different shifts/departments can cause workers a great deal of stress and hostility in the workplace. There is a culture in healthcare that is a ‘sink or swim’ mentality rather than a working together and helping each other out. I have worked in healthcare for 27 years as a care aide.

Fears and Solutions Board

A poster that asks two questions: what are you afraid of? and what are you going to do about it? It’s a way to get students and new careworkers to open up about their fears before they are actually working in the field.
