Blister packs are a medication distribution system. Basically,  it is an easier way for staff to administer their medication for their residents or for a family member. A prescription goes to the chemist, and the chemist then would fill the prescription. As they are filling the prescription he will split the doses up into each day, so for example, Monday mornings. If the person has three tablets there will be 3 tablets in the blister pocket. If he has, if the person has say a medication at lunchtime, there will be one in that pocket, and if they have any evening medications or any further medications before bedtime, then the medication will be in the next row of pockets.
