Abstract (type = abstract)
Background: Safe medication administration through Bar Code Medication Administration (BCMA) had been widely supported in the literature, however, evidence on the efficacy of tethered versus non-tethered bar code scanners in the emergency department setting was lacking.
Objective: The purpose of this project was to evaluate the efficacy of medication scanning devices on patient scanning rates in an emergency department and to fully implement the most efficient technology.
Method: This was a quality improvement project using retrospective data from an existing database. Patient scanning rates for the emergency department were obtained in a retrospective manner.
Results: Patient scanning rates were found to be higher on tethered computers then non-tethered computers. There was no significant relationship to support either tethered or non-tethered BCMA scanners as it related to patient scanning compliance.
Conclusion: The recommendation from this study is to leave the current technology in place Given the results of this project, recommendations for the type of BCMA scanner should be based on cost of the product initially and rate of replacement. Further study should be conducted with a larger sample size in a more diverse clinical setting.
