Codonics: SLS Safe Label System


Safe, Compliant, Fast Medication Labeling Anywhere Syringes Are Prepared.

Codonics SLS Safe Label System is a complete solution for safe, compliant, fast labeling of medication in the operating room, or anywhere syringes are prepared. This innovative system improves the syringe preparation workflow by automatically printing ASA (American Society of Anesthesiologists) compliant full-color labels containing all TJC (The Joint Commission) required elements while the syringe is being filled. Simply scan a vial and SLS provides both visual and audible confirmation of the medication name and strength (concentration), and automatically prints the ready-to-apply label. Each label includes a configurable data-rich barcode that can be used to integrate into the Anesthesiology Information Management System (AIMS) or a broader hospital information system.

Improve Patient Safety

Multiple distractions and poor handwriting greatly contribute to the chance an anesthesiologist could get drug vials confused or put the wrong label on a drug. The Codonics SLS 500i is an electronic double-check that helps to remove the element of human error by incorporating machine-readable technology, greatly reducing the three most common drug errors made in the O.R.
