- Medication errors are an important cause of complications during hospitalization and lead to prolonged hospital stay.
- The medication process is complex and prone to errors because of the involvement of different healthcare personnel. In the hospital, the physician prescribes, the pharmacist delivers and the nurse administers the medication.
- The medication supply of the patient is provided in department specific medication carts. The nurse takes the medication cart with him during the medication round.
- The medication carts are equipped with a laptop on which the hospital information system runs and they are connected with the system via WIFI.
- Since the medication cart is too large to be taken in the patient's room, the nurse consults beforehand who should receive which medication, prepares the medication and then enters the room to administer the medication. Afterwards she records in the system which medication was administered to which patient.
- However, this phase of the medication process is prone to human error. To avoid errors, the nurse should ideally double-check at the bedside whether she is going to give the right medication at the right time in the right dose to the right patient. This check is not currently taking place.
- Double-checking with patient's bedside administration verification by means of an app on a mobile device equipped with a barcode scanner can exclude these administration errors
- Since the ideal mobile device still needs to be selected and the Flutter framework is based on the Cross Platform principle, the application must be developed in Flutter. This is the objective of this project.
- Ergonomics and speed are extremely important for the end user.
