Our selection of medication packaging is designed to save your staff time when administering medications, leaving them more time to devote to patient care.
At Gunn & McConville Pharmacy, we appreciate that different facilities have different needs. Our approach to each aged care facility we work with is an individual one. The flexibility of our medication packaging and delivery services reflects our ability to cater for all situations.
Packaging services provided:
We supply individual resident's medications securely and hygienically packed in Gunn & McConville sachets. These are small biodegradable paper packets which contain the resident's medicines for a particular date and dose time. Each sachet is labelled with a unique identifier for quality assurance. The resident’s name, the drugs contained in the sachet as well as their dose and description are printed on the sachet itself.
Gunn & McConville sachets typically come in a 7-day roll providing you with all you need for that period. Each sachet has a perforated edge so that it is easily separated from the one following it. An easy tear top means accessing the contents is effortless.
We can also provide Medication Storage Containers to make storing and accessing your residents' sachets even easier.
Our Multi-dose Webster-paks provide medication packed in a sealed weekly calendar blister pack, clearly labelled with the resident's name, room number and a full description of the medications packed.
We can customise administration times to help your staff accurately administer medications to each individual resident.
As well as packing regular medications in a muti-dose pack, we also provide colour-coded Webster-paks for short-term orders, schedule 8 drugs (drugs of addiction) and drugs that may require special care, such as warfarin.
