Safe Label System (SLS)


Medication Labeling Solution

Safe, compliant, fast medication labeling — anywhere medications are prepared

Codonics Safe Label System (SLS) is an award-winning, FDA-approved medical device that improves the safety and accuracy of medication management, integrating worldwide recognized best practices and international standards. A complete solution to enhance patient care, SLS uses barcode technology to read information from a drug container and electronically verify it against the hospital’s pharmacy-approved formulary database at the point of care.

Where SLS is used

The system integrates with both manual and smart anesthesia drug carts (ADCs)* in the OR, enabling it to be conveniently situated as part of the anesthesia workflow. SLS is also widely used in the ICU, for patient care on the floor and at the bedside, and in the pharmacy.

Improve patient safety

Problems associated with mislabeling and mishandling of medications continue to adversely affect hospitals and surgical facilities. Drug labeling requires time and vigilance, and is prone to human error. For example, in the OR, anesthetists are met with competing demands, coupled with the challenge to handwrite the required drug information in a legible manner on a very small area. SLS uses barcode technology to read information from drug containers and empowers you to label any medication, anywhere in your facility, with a compliant label.

Workflow eliminates medication errors and improves compliance

When a drug is scanned on SLS, the clinician is immediately presented with audible and visual confirmation of the drug and concentration in hand, providing an electronic “double-check”, a safeguard that ensures the medication selected is the intended medication. The system then automatically presents a TJC-compliant, easy-to-read and ready-to-apply label that meets ASA guidelines, eliminating the need for handwriting and ensuring safety, accuracy and compliancy.

SLS reduces the 3 most common drug errors made in the OR:

Additional benefits

  • Includes a 2D barcode on labels enabling electronic documentation of the medication in the patient’s AIMS/EHR
  • When integrated with an anesthesia cart, SLS can help to decrease stock-outs, improve inventory control and increase charge capture
  • Data analytics provide pharmacy insight into the OR
  • When integrated with AIMS, identifies syringes prior to administration, provides warnings for expired syringes, patient allergies or adverse drug interactions
  • Prints labels for IV lines, invasive monitor lines, and other OR needs on demand
