The drug log in the TargetSolutions Check It™ application enables agencies to document, track and report all medications and controlled substances utilized by personnel.
To effectively protect and serve communities, agencies must ensure departments have the right tools and supplies and everything is available and functioning properly.
The TargetSolutions Check It™ operations management application not only streamlines performing and tracking routine apparatus and equipment inspections, but also enables departments to log, track and report all drugs and controlled substances handled by personnel. The drugs log feature in the TargetSolutions Check It™ app helps agencies oversee all medications and drugs utilized in the field and include them in daily EMS inspections.
Building out your drug log in the TargetSolutions Check It™ system is easy with pre-built fields to include important information related to each drug type. You can determine a narcotic’s quantity in either units or volume, track its lot number in case of recall etc. and set expiration dates with automated reminders of when a drug needs replacing. For controlled substances, such as morphine, you can mark the item as such to enable additional reporting.
Once your narcotics are organized, you can also group together related drugs into compartments and include them in daily apparatus and inventory checks by adding the compartment to an apparatus or store room. As personnel complete daily checklists in the TargetSolutions Check It™ app, you can choose options for personnel to provide an e-signature for the compartment check steps.
The TargetSolutions Check It™ drug log not only allows you to track narcotics and medication levels, but also reveals when they were used. Including drugs in a compartment grouping, such as a BLS bag, and assigning it to an apparatus, shows then inventory levels before and after it gets checked out for a shift.
Additionally, manual e-signatures let personnel sign off that the compartment has been checked with their finger or stylus right in the mobile application. By doing so, you can verify the individual has completed the checklist and can is accountable for the items recorded in the BLS bag.
These signatures also carry over when generating reports for a snapshot view of all controlled substances being used across the department – so you can identify any potential issues of waste or overuse.
With ongoing enhancements to the TargetSolutions Check It™ system, the controlled substances log is undergoing more improvements to simplify the management and security of your department’s drugs. Exciting developments on the horizon include more comprehensive overviews of controlled substance logs to visualize quantities, locations and expiration dates.
