A patient can be added to a nursing home from multiple Minfos modules i.e. customer module and the dispense module.
Select a packing patient on the dispense form or find a packing patient in customer maintenance:
1. Click Change or press [Alt+C].
The Customer Editing window is displayed.
a. Click the Carer tab and select Nursing Home from the Type of Carer dropdown list.
b. Enter the nursing home code or name in the Nursing Home field and press [Tab] to search and select the nursing home.
c. DoseAid Only: enter the Ward No. provided by DoseAid.
2. Click OK to save.
3. Repeat for all packing patients.
Patients assigned to a nursing home set up as DoseAid, Meditec, Quantum or Third Party Other, will now display the ‘Z. Pill Box’ option in the Script Options window. This option allows you to charge a dispensed script to the patients account and update the Virtual Pillbox balance from Dispense. The stock on hand will NOT be affected when using this option.
Note For DoseAid, Meditec, Quantum and all other Third Party Packing providers, the patients require an account. Refer to Add a new customer account. For Blister Packing you will require a packing label set up, refer to Blister Packing Labels for more information.
