Blister Packs (Bubble packs, Bingo cards) are the most commonly used packaging for solid oral medications. Medications are separated by dosing and time of day. Cycle medications will be delivered on a 28 day basis.
The 28 day cycle fill is unique to Mallatt’s Pharmacy. We began using this format a few years ago at the request of our clients. The 28 day packaging allows homes the opportunity to have cycles delivered on the same day every four weeks. Administrators, nurses, or managers do not have to come in on a weekend or holiday to deal with the “switchout”—now they can do it during the week when staff is at full strength.
