I feel my fellow pharmacists will be concerned about products getting tagged inappropriately. How does the checking process between techs and pharmacists work at other institutions?

Once a Tech has associated the medications and tags, the meds are in the ‘restricted’ status. A pharmacist may verify that the medications were properly tagged by comparing the Manufacturer label’s printed expiration date and lot number by following the same Pharmacist Vefiraction When multiple items are blue-box scanned, or a single item is scanned with the hand-held, the pharmacist is shown the expiration date and lot number associated with the restricted drug. If that matches what they can visually see on the vial, they can verify the drug.
