c. Requisitions. Requisitions are formatted to facilitate and minimize handling,
that is, appropriate information is provided with a minimum of duplication. The
worksheet for lab work, for example, includes space to fill in test results. Specimen
pickup lists to be done by the wards are resorted by ward and bed number. For each
drug order, all necessary documents are automatically printed in the pharmacy: a
prescription record, gummed label for medication bottle, allergy alert notice, and patient
medication profile (for pharmacies that employ "unit dose" dispensing).
