Stevenson Memorial Hospital’s Pharmacy Department is comprised of a team of Pharmacists and Pharmacy Technicians who work together to provide medication distribution and clinical services to hospital patients using a pharmaceutical care model. These services include:
Pharmacists play a key role in a multidisciplinary team. They work with other members of the healthcare team to ensure that patients receive optimal medication therapy while in hospital. All medications orders are checked for possible drug interactions, allergies, and appropriate dosing. Pharmacists counsel patients on medications and monitor response to therapy while in hospital.
Pharmacy Technicians purchase and maintain drug inventory in all areas of the hospital. They prepare medication doses for patients, which are dispensed in single unit-of-use packages. Technicians and Pharmacists work together to promote safe, effective use of medications throughout the hospital.
When you arrive at the hospital, please bring a list of your medications with you to help our pharmacists determine the proper course of action.
