Abstract

Purpose: One of the most efficient technologies in management of medication orders is barcode medication administration (BCMA). This study conducted to assess the readiness of nurses for application of BCMA systems. Methods: We surveyed 28 nursing managers, and 283 randomly selected nurses working in teaching hospitals affiliated with Iran University of Medical Sciences. To evaluate readiness of nurses, we examined �nurses� competency� and �training of nurses� in attitude of nurse managers, also nurses� attitude about BCMA. We used two questionnaires to gather data. Data were analyzed using SPSS by descriptive statistic methods (frequency, mean, standard deviation). Results: The most readiness rate of hospitals was associated with nurses� attitude about BCMA application (76.2), and the lowest rate was referred to training level (23.1). Conclusion: Nurses� attitude about BCMA was in good level, however, there were issues such as lack of training and absence of training plans related with barcodes and BCMA which could obstruct implementation of the system.
