s per medication.
* Generic medications are averaged at ten cent
•• For simplicity, a cost of one dollar per medication dispensed is used. That is the cost of five minutes of a $12/hour company nurse. This is an extremely conservative formula. We have not added the cost of time for ordering and stocking medications or employee time to this formula which would also add significantly to company costs.
