Memphis, TN: MedixSafe offers free tool to assist decision makers in narcotics security choices.
MedixSafe makes high tech narcotics lockers used by ambulances, emergency vehicles, clinics, medical offices, and pharmacies. The Medixsafe M1 Narcotics Cabinet set a new standard for narcotics security when they introduced the ambulance trade’s first dual access security solution incorporating both proximity card readers and PIN pads. The M2 Narcotics Cabinet incorporates both fingerprint scanners and PIN pads, allowing for the highest degree of individual accountability and automated record keeping, assuring compliance with new, stricter regulations.
Selecting a method of controlling narcotics is an important decision. Achieving the desired results of authenticating and documenting access is the keystone in the decision making process.
Types of access include:
1. Dual Manual Mechanical Locks
2. Dual Electronic PIN Access
3. Key Override Systems
4. Dual Authenticated Electronic Access
5. Triple Authenticated Electronic Access
6. Double Dual Authenticated Electronic Access
7. Dual Custody with Dual or Triple Authenticated Electronic Access
Additional factors to be considered include authenticating user access and documenting who has had access to the narcotics control cabinet, locker, or safe. For more information, download the free white paper “Narcotics Security Choices, Keeping Drugs Safe and Employees Accountable.”
Keys or PIN numbers alone are no longer enough to ensure security and accountability for emergency narcotics access. Across the country, controlled substance inventory loss is having a critical impact on patient care, staff integrity, liability, and the bottom line. This has led to new regulatory demands for an access audit trail – MedixSafe not only enforces authorized access, it tracks access for unprecedented accountability. MedixSafe offers unique, field-tested security technologies to meet those demands.
