Best Practices for Safe Medication Administration during Anesthesia Care
FDA-approved Class II
Patients are counting on you, count on Safe Label System!
Medication errors are happening right now…somewhere. Maybe your facility has not been touched by this preventable tragedy, but you probably know of a hospital that has. Meeting and exceeding compliance has been extremely difficult. But it is finally within our reach to end medication labeling errors…forever.

Safe Drug Labeling. Designed for Clinicians, Driven by Pharmacy.
Solutions by Department
In the Pharmacy
Given today’s demand for safe and effective medication preparation, providing strict oversight is a challenging task for pharmacy, yet essential to ensure medication safety, security and management. Safe Label System (SLS) empowers the hospital with the tools to merge hospital-approved formularies and policies with international labeling standards in high risk procedural areas and anywhere medications are prepared.
In the OR
In the fast-paced enviroment of the OR, ensuring syringes are consistently labeled and in compliance with TJC standards and ASA guidelines can greatly reduce the chance of error. The three most common medication errors which occur in the OR include ampoule and vial swaps, mislabeling or illegible labeling, and syringe swaps.
On the Floor
Despite your dedication to excellent patient care, medication errors are among the most common medical mistakes. To help ensure patient safety, SLS Point of Care Station (PCS) can be placed anywhere medications are prepared – such as patient floors and nurse medication prep stations – providing accurate and compliant medication labels on demand.
In the ICU/PACU
Codonics Safe Label System (SLS) helps reduce the use of costly prefilled syringes by empowering users to prepare medications in the pharmacy. SLS enables medications to be prepared and compliantly labeled in small or large batches and sent up to the floors, and integrates with RIVA robots to improve syringe labeling to meet compliance requirements for use in the perioperative environment.
What they are saying
“In my view, SLS is a major advancement in medicine. It is an ultimate safety device that belongs in every OR. It’s quick, it’s easy, and really I don’t want to do anesthesia without it.”— Dr. John Scavone, Shriners Hospital for Children
“In the actual clinical use of SLS, end users report improved efficiency (20-30%), reduced errors (95%), and improvements in compliancy and related safety in connection with reduced near misses.”— Swathi Allada, Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst, Medical Devices
“During a routine case, I needed Zofran. It wasn’t until I scanned the vial on Safe Label System that I realized I had Hydromorphone – a narcotic – which had been incorrectly placed in the anesthesia cart. Had it not been for Safe Label System’s visual and audible safety checks alerting me, my pediatric patient would have never woke up.”— Anesthesia Resident
