At our hospital, we label all of our medications, including in-house injectables, with colored dot stickers to quickly identify
the expiration date of each item. Each color stands for a different year, and we write the month and year on it as well. This
way, when we assess inventory or dispense medications, we can easily identify if a medication is within the expiration year.
