Every care home strives to provide the highest standard of care for their patients. They have a wide range of responsibilities from medical care, to providing nutrition, to ensuring each patient’s social and emotional needs are being met. It is no short order providing this comprehensive level of care and as budgets are increasingly being tightened, staff may have to take on several roles at once.
How Care Home Pharmacies Can Help
To ensure that staff isn’t overwhelmed and medications are dispensed in an efficient, safe, and accurate manner, many care homes are turning to care home pharmacies. Care home pharmacies can take many of the medication duties off your hands and provide an extra layer of safety. With a care home pharmacy, you can rest assured that all medications will follow all regulations while meeting your patients’ needs.
With Pharmacy to My Door’s care home pharmacy services, you will receive the skills of a dedicated, experienced pharmacist. They will become your liaison with the GP and hospitals, taking the burden of prescription requests off your staff. Your pharmacist can also advise about medications and order same-day emergency prescriptions up until 6pm. Because our services are fully digitised, they are more streamlined and flexible than other pharmacies.
Additional benefits include:
- An in-house audit system for an added level of medication protection
- Prescription collection
- Provide mid-cycle changes or new medications
