Medication errors are common in long-term care homes, as older adults are at an increased-risk of experiencing medication errors. Additionally, most older adults living in long-term care homes have dementia, and few can identify themselves; this increases the risk of a medication error. Tap2Tag Medical Ltd. offers the Tap2Tag Medical Alert Bracelet. The bracelet encompasses a personal health record which, once âtappedâ by a smartphone, loads a âprofileâ onto the web browser of the phone. Essentially, the wearable speaks for the individual as the profile can communicate the personâs name, medication allergies, etc.
