CheckCLIP medication labeling device allows clinicians to draw up the drug with both the syringe and ampoule remaining in their hands at all time. This reduces the risk of both syringe swap and ampoule swap errors.
First hand exposure to these errors and near-misses inspired three Australian paramedics to invent the Qlicksmart CheckCLIP.
The CheckCLIP is simple and quick to use, enabling a clear visual cross-checking of the medication details without obstructing the incremental dosage markings on the syringe. This significantly improves the tracking and identification of medications, and assists in compliance with the Five Rights of medication administration.
