Use PVC to fill prescriptions ASAP

For an easy way to dispense commonly used medications, prefill 10 or so labeled vials. Take a piece of PVC pipe just wider than the vials and screw it to a wall or the side of a cabinet. Then drop in the vials to create a Pez-like dispenser (left). Team members can then easily grab the vials to keep things moving during a busy day.
