Robot pharmacy dispensers may reduce pharmacy errors, but increase risk of contamination

Comments (0)

Robotic pharmacy dispensers may be one way the health industry has pioneered to reduce the risk of pharmacy errors, but another risk apparently comes with these machines – bacterial contamination.

A study published in the journal Infection Control and Hospital Epidemiology reported that this was the first known instance of a pharmacy robot that was contaminated by bacteria with a resultant contamination of intravenous drugs.

Drug-resistant bacteria found in hospital dispenser
During a routine screening at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center in North Carolina staff took drug samples from a robotic medicine dispenser used to prepare intravenous medications. Tests revealed that harmful bacteria called Bacillus cereus were present in the samples.

This type of bacteria is drug-resistant to alcohol and other disinfectants and can be a big health threat to patients. No patients were harmed in this case, according to researchers, but if intravenous drugs are contaminated with this bacteria and given to a pateint it could cause bloodstream infections.

Hospital robot dispensers are gaining popularity
You may have seen these robotic medicine dispensers in hospitals. They are becoming more widely used in hospitals and while they may reduce the risk of human error in dispensing prescriptions, another type of risk is still associated with these machines.
