Protecting the Baltic Sea and our other water systems by helping the elderly manage their medicines
Every year, Finnish households produce a vast amount of medical waste consisting of medicines that have expired or are no longer needed. These should be disposed of correctly, by returning them to a pharmacy. Elderly people in particular tend to accumulate a large amount of unused and expired medicines. Proper unit-dose dispensing of medicine and medicine-dispensing robots help minimise the amount of unused medication elderly people have at home, writes Senior Sales Manager Tea Mills.
