Descrizione

This checklist provides guidance on the ergonomic design of a medication cart as this impacts patient and staff safety and health issues. The checklist is not a list of features, but rather a list of items that affect ease of use, safety, and effectiveness and reduce the chance of a medical error. The checklist can be used to evaluate a single cart or to compare multiple cart designs.
