Huntington, WV – (December 29, 2014) Fruth Pharmacy is now offering two solutions for persons who cannot read the print on their prescription drug container labels. Often those who are visually impaired, elderly, or have other print-impaired disabilities find their independence and safety endangered by inadvertently taking the wrong medication, the wrong amount or under the wrong instructions because they cannot read the label. Patients can receive either ScripTalk audible labels or ScripView large print labels based on their need.
ScripTalk is an audible prescription reader. The ScripTalk label is embedded with a microchip and is programmed with all the printed label data. The patient places the container onto a small hand-held reader, and with the press of a button, is able to listen to the information including patient name, drug name and instructions, pharmacy contact information, warnings and more. Deaf-Blind users can request ScripTalk User software to export text to their Braille browser display.
ScripView is a large-print, booklet-style label attached to the prescription container. It provides easy access to the prescription label for those with low vision. The label contains all the same information as the pharmacy’s regular label, but in large print, as well as a 2D barcode that can be scanned by an iOS device for an audible version using the ScripView app.
The ScripTalk service is free. To receive ScripTalk or ScripView prescriptions customers should contact Fruth Pharmacy at 304-525-0507. Fruth Pharmacy offers delivery of prescriptions and customers can also have additional items delivered along with their prescriptions.
