The TUG robot in pharmacy delivers medications automatically from the pharmacy to the nursing unit.  It travels the hallways, rides elevators, opens doors and navigates obstacles to securely deliver medications to the nursing unit.  It secures and automates deliveries that are normally made through pneumatic tubes or manual couriers including controlled substances and refilling carts.
