    Real vs. Fake Medication Vials

    Is it okay to use real (but empty) medication vials that are used in hospitals, but for simulation in a university setting? Has there been any literature written about the benefits or risks of using real medication vials? Any helps would be most appreciated. Thank you.

    There have been instances of simulation medications going into the clinical environment and being given to patients.  All simulation meds need to be labeled not for human use, but even more so real medications that have been replaced with distilled water.

    these five checks can help you spot a great many counterfeits, especially the more basic
    1. Check the company.

    2. Check the dates.

    3. Check the seals.

    4. Check the format. 

    5. Do your research.

    Use G-check to check the bar code, usually every real product will have a bar code registered with the competent authority.

    People at times don’t know the difference between real and fake medication rules. Before acquiring proper treatment you should be well aware of the treatments and other methods to be followed so that it can help you from taking a great risk.
