Always verify to make sure that the correct prescription is counted and filled:
The verification that we are referring to as Rx Verification involves verifying that the medication issued to fill a prescription is the same medication that is called for in the prescription.
This, of course, was done manually by Pharmacists for centuries. The manual system worked well when the pharmacist was unhurried and only filled a small number of scripts per day. The Pharmacist usually retrieved the drug to be dispensed and could well afford the time to double check his work. Nowadays, however, we find that the number of active prescription medicines has grown enormously and the number of scripts which must be filled has expanded proportionately.
Over the course of the last several decades, one balance emerged as the industry standard for weighing and compounding. The Torsion Balance DRX-3 was first introduced after the Second World War, and rapidly became the industry standard. Chances are if you go into a compounding pharmacy in any of the fifty states, you will find a DRX-3 behind the counter.
