Med-Q Medication Timer reduces medication mistakes for seniors
Med-Q Medication timer to Sam’s rescue. When Sam Levy broke his arm on the football field his parents set out to find her the best care in Phoenix. “We drove past other hospitals to get to the one we wanted,” says Carol Ley, M.D., an occupational health physician.
A pill box or medication timer was not on her mind.
She, made sure Sam got the right surgeon. After surgery, Sam who was 9 at the time, received the pain medicine morphine through a pump and was hooked up to a heart monitor, breathing monitor, and blood oxygen monitor. His recovery was going so well that doctors decided to turn off the morphine pump and to forgo regular checks of her vital signs. They were wrong.
Why do people need a medication timer?
The medical term for making medication errors is “Medical Non-Compliance. A medication error is “any preventable event that may cause or lead to inappropriate medication use or patient harm while the medication is in the control of the health care professional, patient, or consumer,” according to the National Coordinating Council for Medication Error Reporting and Prevention.
The council, a group of more than 25 national and international organizations, including the FDA. The group will examine and evaluate medication errors and recommends strategies for error prevention. The chances of making medication errors at home are high. It is not unusual for mom forgetting pills or dad forgetting medication. Dementia and Alzheimer’s forgetting medication is a growing problem. Forgetting depression medication is also on the rise. The need for a new type of pill clock is huge.
That is why we invented the MED-Q Medication Timer.
An old fashion pill box did not work. A pill box that is a medication timer or pill organizer alarm has to be brought into to home use. A pill reminder is much more then a plastic pill box. Whether it is an Alzheimer’s pill alarm or a pill dispenser it is needed.

A Medication Alarm Clock with built in Medication Timer is like having in a live-in medical helper at pill taking times. The media exposed the 1999 report from the Institute of Medicine (IOM), “To Err is Human: Building a Safer Health System.” The study reported that between 44,000 and 98,000 deaths result every year from medical errors in hospitals alone. In addition. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and other federal agencies formed the Quality Inter agency Coordination Task Force in 2000. It’s goal, “Action plan for reducing medical errors”.
