You rely on your medications to keep you healthy. But complex medication schedules can lead to mistakes: missing doses, taking incorrect amounts, or taking pills at the wrong time. These mistakes could potentially lead to unnecessary doctor or hospital visits, illness, or even death. With the help of a Philips Medication Dispenser, you and your loved ones no longer need to worry if you're taking your medications correctly. The dispenser alerts you with an audible reminder and a flashing light (for hearing impaired individuals) when it's time to take your medicine. At the push of the button the machine will dispense an easy-to-handle plastic cup with your pills inside. If a dose is missed, a caregiver can be notified. They can check on you to make sure you're getting your medications.
How it Works: A nurse or caregiver will load the medication cups and put them in the dispenser. Philips Lifeline will help you program the scheduling times for the machine to dispense. You can load up to 60 doses of medication at once, so if someone takes pills 2 times a day, you can load the machine for 30 days!
Healthcare professionals trust Philips Lifeline to help their patients continue to live independently at home. Under medicating or over medicating can have serious consequences.
