There are numerous factors that contribute to making a pharmacy an excellent partner. One of the most important factors is developing a diligent, compassionate, and competent staff. A staff with these qualities can offer consultations in medication and proper administration which work towards solutions with chronic health issues. These solutions can help to provide affordable alternatives to generic brands and other options available. Additionally, a great pharmacy offers both education and access regarding convenient vaccinations. These pharmacies will also provide assistance in understanding and choosing pill dispensers and bottles, with several options related to easy-to-open containers and special packaging. On top of all that, having the desire to improve the health of the population while decreasing costs with added values like providing access to various levels on a drug formulary is characteristic of a beneficial pharmacy.
Medication administration time, which is commonly referred to as a med pass, at any long-term care facility can be a challenging time. No matter how seasoned the nurses and staff is, many moving pieces can complicate the situation including multiple medications per resident, illegible instructions, emergencies, new orders, and family interruptions. All of these scenarios can often drag out the process and, depending on the size of the facility, make medication administration almost a full-time job for staff.
