That's right. GNUmed will not let you edit a substance or
brand as long as it is in use with a patient. Allowing that
would be a patient safety issue.

Same as with editing. It would be a patient safety issue.

That is correct. GNUmed will not allow the user to use
identical names for different drugs.
Doing so would be a patient safety issue.
One will need to call each unique drug by a unique name.
Everything else would be a patient safety issue. Yes, drug
companies are patient safety issues, as we all know.
