Pharmacies can prefill the trays, and send the pharmacy technician to the person’s home with the tray. As there are special notches in the trays, it is impossible to place the tray upside down or in the wrong direction.
No one needs to touch the medications as they are preloaded and in separate cups. With the preloaded trays from the pharmacy, the cost for nursing visits is drastically reduced.
In fact, instead of a nursing visit once or twice a day, the nurse can come in weekly or even less frequently, depending on the needs of the individual.
