SLS Advanced Smart Scanning (SASS)

SLS Advanced Smart Scanning (SASS)


Codonics Safe Label System (SLS) is an award-winning medication safety device that uses barcode technology to read vial and ampoules at the point of care. When a clinician scans a medication on SLS, the system provides visual and audible identification of the drug in hand and, on demand, produces a Joint Commission-compliant label that includes a barcode to enable integration with the electronic health record (EHR).

Sometimes, however, there are occasions when you need to scan a medication or an item stored in the anesthesia cart but not necessarily produce a label.

SLS’s Advanced Smart Scanning feature allows users to scan a container and automatically print a label or not print a label. For example, scanning a manufacturer’s prefilled syringe and hearing SLS announce the drug name and concentration without printing a label. This better ensures you have selected the correct drug even when there is no need for a printed label.

When integrated with an automated drug cart (ADC) that supports SASS, SLS decrements inventory of any item in the cart that contains a barcode when scanned at SLS even when a label isn’t printed. For example, SLS allows users to scan non-drug containers (e.g. gauze, syringes) that have barcodes on their packaging and automatically decrement the cart inventory. SLS provides audible confirmation of the item scanned to help ensure safety.
