Our pharmacy techs print detailed tags and our pharmacist use those detailed tags NDC, lot, exp as a means to double-check the medication product. How can they do this moving forward?

While the KitCheck tag, basic or detailed, is a fit-for-purpose tool for tracking medications, their locations, and their expirations – when it comes to final verification of non-expiration before administration to a patient, it is best practice and we strongly recommend that any provider, tech, or other personnel use the manufacturer label’s printed expiration date. The manufacturer label is the final source of truth. Many hospitals that have switched to Basic Tags prefer that the expiration date is not on the Basic Tag because it forces the personnel to use the manufacturer label as is best practice.
