Eastern Idaho Regional was the first hospital in Idaho to use electronic medication administration records (eMar) to reduce medication errors. This technology ensures that the right patient receives the right medication and dosage at the right time.
When it’s time for a patient to receive medication, a nurse scans the medication and the patient’s wristband. If, for some reason, the medication doesn’t match the order by the physician, the nurse is automatically alerted and will make the correction.
