Dennis Quaid is continuing his efforts for better safety in taking a tour of a hospital in Dallas that is using a bar coding system.  Hat’s off for his continued efforts and taking the time to find out what’s available out there.  As everyone remembers his 2 children had staff infections and were taken to Cedars-Sinai, which was the visit that ended up being disastrous with the Heparin overdose.  BD

Officials at Children's Medical Center Dallas showed Quaid and his wife, Kimberly, the hospital's system of bar-coding medications to allow the drugs to be tracked electronically from the point of dispensing until being administered to the patient.
