They can be printed with a regular laser printer. “Every facility has unique requirements,” said Bob Braverman, director of marketing for Medi-Dose/EPS. “The new oral butterfly labels help facilities call attention to information they believe vital in promoting safety and practitioner awareness, while reducing the potential for medication error,” he added.
