Prescription Readers Mandated by Nevada SB 131

A new law in Nevada aims to help visually impaired or blind residents avoid taking the wrong medicine. Nevada SB 131 mandates that all pharmacies offer for free to requesting patients prescription reading devices that read aloud the name of the drug, the name of the person it is prescribed to, and the recommended dosage.  The Act was signed in May 2017 and takes effect on January 1, 2018.

As more Americans age, the number of people with visual impairment and the demand for accessible labels increases. With the unanimous passing of SB 131, Nevada has taken a proactive stance on meeting the burgeoning need for accessible prescription labels. More states will likely follow suit.
