Ever seen a patient/parent walk into the pharmacy with expired Epipen/Epipen Jr autoinjector? The pens expired a while ago without realising it! So the pen might have expired when it is actually needed. Not good.
As we know, Anaphylaxis is a potentially life threatening allergic condition. When you need it, you need it. Expired one will not do and because they are used rarely, it is easy to forget when it goes out of date.
Enter epipen.co.uk online patient registration website where you can register free of charges to receive alerts 4-weeks and 2-weeks prior to expiration date and 1 day after the expiration date.
We like to promote good ideas at bookapharmacist.com and this one of them.
