When things suddenly go wrong, the bad habit remains to point the finger of blame elsewhere. For instance, if a family member should suddenly fall seriously ill due to the ingestion of a toxic pill that has gone way past its expiry date, the distressed mother may choose to irately wail at the pharmacy store owner that supplied the tarnished goods. In turn, in order to save face, the store owner may choose to lodge a legal complaint at the door of the package handler.
Fortunately, such incidents are very few and far between, given that medical packaging is both professionally managed and legally mandated. In most parts of the world, in fact, global partnerships weigh in here, it is a case of law that all medical goods pills, medicines, instruments, machinery, even surgical clothing (usually in the form of protective wear) are securely packaged, stored and distributed in line with a number of regulations and directives drawn up.
In lieu of global and collaborative laws, very much like those that govern quarantine conditions and the reasons for it, no medical packaging may leave ports’ warehouses for wholesale distribution until such time that the relevant inspectorates are well and truly satisfied that all packaged goods are safe for distribution to service suppliers and their consumers. The global imperative is to also keep all these critical goods as safe as possible.
Professional packaging companies are contracted to utilize their most advanced packaging, warehousing and distributions systems. The technologies are all there to ensure efficiency of purpose but given the sensitive nature of this production and facilitating process, all facets of the manufacturing; packaging and warehousing of medical goods and supplies must be managed by a human interface. And he is usually legally and professionally qualified to do so.
