People who cannot read their prescription labels often make medication errors, sometimes leading to hospitalization or worse. To address this serious issue, several pharmacies now provide accessible prescription labels.
Provided by En-Vision America, “Scriptability” labels provide a safe and convenient way to access prescription information for individuals who cannot read standard print. The labels are free to customers who are blind or visually impaired. Customers can also obtain a free Scriptability reader from Envision America that will enable them to listen to the information on the label.
The number of pharmacies offering accessible Rx labels is increasing. To find a store near you, select this link or call 1-800-890-1180.
