Don't Count on Med Labeling and Packaging to Be Foolproof
You can help prevent errors from risky med labeling and packaging.
Similar packaging. Packages of clobetasol cream and lidocaine/prilocaine cream from certain manufacturers are being confused...since the cartons have a similar color, design, and size.
And tubes of neomycin/polymyxin B/bacitracin eye ointment and erythromycin 0.5% eye ointment from some manufacturers look nearly identical. Plus some packages have the med name in tiny text that's hard to read.
