Reduce medication-dosing errors
KG Only and KG Locking Scales are ideal solutions for facilities implementing metric-only weighing protocols for standardization to help reduce the incidence of weight-based medication-dosing errors. Since most medication doses are typically dispensed in metric measurements, calculating dosages from a weight reported in pounds can potentially lead to treatment or conversion errors.
KG Only models eliminate the risk of weight being measured in pounds and inadvertently recorded in kilograms since there are no pound settings or need to reconfigure the weight mode.
Similarly, KG Locking models allow facilities to employ scales with both kilogram and pound functionality, enabling staff to lock the scales in either KG or LBS mode—so there is no risk of accidentally unlocking the scale and changing the measurement.
