Dispensing The Prescription

Dr. R. S. Thakur

Introduction: The process of dispensing a prescription is a highly responsible job where extreme care is required to ensure safety in dispensing. An effective system of safe dispensing with checking and re-checking of prescription before dispensing medicines is not only very important but also inevitably necessary in the interest of health and happiness of the patient. It is pharmacist’s professional responsibility to ensure that prescriptions are properly dispensed and any potential medication error is completely avoided. As human error cannot be eliminated completely it is essential that all prescriptions written by the doctor are scientifically and technically checked by the pharmacist in each and every respect before it is dispensed. The element of re-checking by the pharmacist reduces prescription errors to a great extent and prevents mishaps or medication errors. There are seven rights which need to be practiced by the Pharmacist i.e. right choice of drug, right dose, right dosage form, right route of administration, right frequency of administration, to right patient, at right time. These are the basic requirements of clinical pharmacokinetics to provide safe and effective medication and eliminate medication related complications.
