Abstract

Nurse-patient interaction is vital to the quality of patient care at any hospital. To increase the amount of time nurses have to spend with their patients the West Roxbury VA Hospital installed a number of automated medication dispensing units. This medication delivery system provides a stock of medications that are immediately available to nurses. Our team worked to quantify the success of this system at reducing missing medications and to analyze the hospital's current medication delivery system as a whole.
