Preventing Prescription Issues With Our Four-Point Quality Check

Posted by IWP on Sep 20, 2016 8:30:00 AM

_DSC6780.jpgMedication errors harm an astonishing 1.5 million people every year and account for $3.5 billion in hospital costs for treating the drug-related injury. At IWP, our pharmacists go well beyond filling medications; they identify and prevent medication-related problems with our Four-Point Quality Check system.

What is a four-point quality check? Quite simply, it’s a review process that checks each prescription four times before it is shipped.

IWP's Four-Point Quality Check System:

  • First technician review l Data entry of the prescription by technician
  • First pharmacist review l Sent ready to pharmacist
  • Second technician review l Filling by the pharmacy technician
  • Second pharmacist review l Final verification by pharmacist

IWP Pharmacists have more than 20 years of clinical experience and hold their patients’ interest above all others.
