I was searching for inpatient pharmacy label examples, specifically IV label examples, for a project that I’m working on and came across a site called RxLabelToolkit.com. It’s a neat little site that offers quite a bit of information on label design. I don’t know if the business is still active as the most recent post I can find on their blog is from December, but it’s worth a few minutes of your time to stop and have a look.
RxLabelToolkit.com: “One of the most valuable features of BarTender for pharmacy, is the ability to perform pharmaceutical calculations right within the label application. This allows us to build a label that can calculate a dose, an infusion rate, expiration date or a taper schedule. Any mathematical formula needed can be performed right in the label application.”
The site has some pretty cool examples. The ampicillin label below is my favorite. There’s also a brief slide presentation that walks you through all the fields on the example label.
