Pharmacy begins bedside prescription services

A new program recently began on SAMC's 7-East/Cardiovascular nursing floor in which a pharmacist will offer prescription services to specific discharged patients. The pharmacist reviews and instructs patients about their discharged medications, providing them with filled prescriptions at the bedside before discharge.

"The purpose is to reduce readmissions and improve the clarity of medication instructions when a patient is discharged," said Jessica Smith, RPh, Bedside-Rx program. "Higher risk patients, including those with prescriptions for anticoagulants, inhalers and diabetic medications will be the primary focus."

Bedside-Rx recently expanded its coverage to selected patients on 4-East/Cardiovascular and expects to begin serving patients on 6-East/Neurosurgery/Neurology soon. Bedside-Rx service is available Monday - Friday 8 a.m. - 4 p.m. The office is on the 7-East/Cardiovascular nursing unit.
