Our Pharmacy Department provides medication-related services to our patients, our clients with Hospice, Casa de la Paz, our Infusion Center, and our Outpatient Surgical Center. The licensed and certified staff of Pharmacists and nationally certified Pharmacy Technicians interact with patients, physicians, and nursing staff to provide safe, effective, and cost-effective therapies. Our pharmacists’ credentials include Doctors of Pharmacy.
The complexity and potential toxicities of pharmaceuticals require that a pharmacist, prior to dispensation of medication to any of our patients, review all medication orders. The pharmacists will assess medication orders in relation to the patient’s medical history, current medical status, and allergies, and will recommend changes in therapy when indicated.
