Home care pharmacies provide accurate, up-to-date pharmacy services for home care facilities. Prior to their introduction, home care staff were responsible for filling pharmacy orders and for sorting patients’ meds themselves. Staff were frequently responsible for calling in pharmacy orders themselves, taking time away from providing patients with the care they deserve. Home care pharmacies have shifted this burden away from the staff, allowing them to provide more direct, on-hand patient care.
