ID My Pill: A Digital Assistant for Nurses

Last update on Sept. 6, 2013.

Working in a hospital can be extremely stressful, especially for nurses. Besides working long hours, they must contend to every order doctors give them, and some doctors can be quite difficult to deal with.

To add to their long list of responsibilities, they must take care of the patients. Like doctors, some patients can also be difficult.

So, no matter how nerve-wrecking these two groups of people are, nurses must perform efficiently in their job duties — minus any errors. In fact, there is no room for medical errors.

Shall a nurse make any medical errors he or she is jeopardizing ...

The Burden of Looking Up Medication in Reference Books

Last update on Sept. 6, 2013.

Remember those bulky things we kept on bookcases called books? They're still around, but they're fast becoming a thing of the past. This is because the internet is now more widely read than books.

Nonetheless, for many decades we used books to find information on everything, including medications. We accepted this as the normal way of looking for information because it was all we had in those days.

As a matter ...

ID My Pill is the Answer to Doctors' Typos

Last update on Sept. 6, 2013.

In a sense, doctors function differently from us. They can pronounce medical terms that the rest us struggle with. They can also understand a medical condition firsthand while we need it explained in simpler terms.

Yet despite their medical intelligence, doctors do share a common problem with us: they can misspell words. Even in this computer age, where people do more typing than writing, doctors still misspell the very words they so easily pronounce.

While the misspellings created by non-medical individuals can cause little to no harm, a doctor's misspelling can contribute to tremendous damage.

This is because pharmacists ...

Last update on July 2, 2013.

It may be a considered a joke, but it's true: many doctors have poor penmanship. They hurriedly write prescriptions so they can see all of their scheduled patients.

They don't even take time to dot an "I" or cross a "T"!

While doctors certainly have a justified reason for their hurried writing, it is indeed a problem with a domino effect. It triggers down to the pharmacists and patients.

Last update on June 26, 2013.

The Baby Boomers Generation is the largest generation in America. If you were born in this group (1946-1964), you’re probably proud of the many accomplishments your generation contributed to society: civil rights, pop culture, feminist rights, etc.
