Organize and Maintain Medications (A Caregiver's Guide to Keeping Good Records and your Sanity)
As a caregiver, I learned that by using this system of recording and managing medication records, an individual can:
1. Reduce waste of medications (e.g. too many meds on hand)
2. Reduce abuse of medications (e.g. taking meds that are old, the wrong dose or
the wrong type.)
3. Become more educated in dispensing medications.
(e.g. correct out-dated or incorrect information on medication labels.)
4. Take ownership by having more intelligent interaction with health care providers.
