Every new medication added is reviewed against this list for possible interactions. Our technical staff expertly prepares your medications with an focus on safety. We also work closely with your doctors and nurses to manage all your medications during your stay.
If you have questions concerning your medications, we encourage you to ask your nurse to have one of our clinical pharmacists visit you at your bedside. When you are ready to leave the hospital, our Transitional Care pharmacist is there to help with concerns related to your medications including how best to take them, how to manage adverse effects and where you can find support in your community. Home visits to help you make the most of your medications are available upon request. Your pharmacist can provide tools and tips for making your transition home a successful one.
