The purpose of pharmaceutical care is to improve patient outcomes while optimizing resource utilization. To this end, Pharmacy Services has two overarching foci - clinical services and pharmacy operations. For clinical services, pharmacists apply pharmaceutical care principles to patient care by serving as an expert resource for physicians, nurses and other allied health professionals.
Additionally, pharmacists monitor the efficacy of current pharmacotherapy by assessing patient response and reviewing laboratory results.
Operationally, the department's primary goal is the safe, accurate and timely delivery of pharmaceutical products to the patient by optimizing the systems, processes and logistics of departmental function.
Staffing in the pharmacy is available from 0630 to 1700 on weekdays and from 0730 to 1500 on weekends and major holidays. During off-hours, medications ordered are provided by the House Supervisor. If further assistance is needed, the Pharmacy Director is contacted.
