Blister Packs (Bingo Cards, Bubble Packs) are the most commonly used packaging for solid oral medications in long term care facilities. Medications are packaged in a unique 28 day cycle. We began using this format at the request of our long term care clients. The 28 day packaging allows facilities the opportunity to have cycles delivered on the same day every four weeks. Administrators, nurses, or managers do not have to come in on the weekend or holiday to deal with the “switchout” of medications. They can now accomplish this task during the week when staff is at full strength.
