Abstract The administration of intravenous drugs is a significant source of medical errors. Protocol based care are have been demonstrated to be an efficient way to favor best practices and to avoid simple errors such as those related to expiration date, hygiene regulation among other. The recent availability of the Google Glass, a hands free wearable device offers new opportunities to access care protocols at patients' bedside. In this article, we present a prototype application for displaying care protocols developed through a user centered design. The software enables the navigation through the different steps of care protocols and their validation using barcodes. Three interactions paradigms, tactile, vocal and by eye blink are proposed in order to provide hands free manipulation when necessary. The realization of a concrete project revealed some limitations that should be taken in account in order to ensure the proper behavior of the tool. If no formal evaluation has been performed, the first feedbacks are very positive and encourage us to go forward and test the tool in real care situations.
