For our Long-Term Care facilities, we use the OPUS Medicaton system. This system provides an efficient way to deliver our medications to you. Here are some key points that will put the OPUS Medication system at the top of your list.
Katy Pharmacy offers the OPUS medication system and the medication carts for Nursing Homes and Long-Term Care facilities free of charge.
Accuracy starts with the OPUS color-coded cassette. Easy-to-handle cassettes are divided into multiple, sealed airtight compartments. The tamper-evident cassettes are color-coded for time of administration and labeled according to dosing schedules and day of the week for increased accuracy. OPUS is the only med pass system with eight visual or audible safety checks built right in. It's innovative design allows you to immediately determine if a medication has been missed or tampered with.
EfficiencyReordering is done automatically on a pre-arranged cycle, eliminating time spent on faxing paperwork and communicating routine orders. Cassettes are re-useable. No re-printing labels each time the pharmacy refills orders for routine meds.
Each cassette is personalized, color-coded and segmented by dosing schedule, eliminating time-consuming organizational challenges or difficult-to-open packages. The OPUS system minimizes effort and stress on the care facility staff. In fact, the U.S. Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) recognizes a critical design features; the airtight cassette is easier to manage than foil packets because it doesn't take strong finger force or a sharp object to release the pill.
With other med pass systems, waste is unavoidable. If a resident’s prescriptions change or are discontinued, those pills may be wasted. And the pills have already been paid for. With the OPUS system, pills can be packaged in a month supply cassette, reducing waste by 50-75%. These systems are the simplest, most effective, short-cycle solution.

One of the key factors in looking for a hospice is paying close attention to the pharmacy that services that Hospice. We proudly serve hospices all over the Houston and Katy area. Since we are a family owned and independent pharmacy, we put hospice care as one of our many priorities. As a compounding pharmacy, we are able to utilize different dosage forms to satisfy the needs of the patient. We also offer medication blister pack for patients for accurate administering and to ease the work load of the facility. We understand that at times, the patient will need immediate availability of the medication. Having a pharmacist and deliverer on duty 24/7 fulfills this need.
Overall – The patient's wellbeing is our priority.
