MEDICATION MANAGEMENT

medication-managementImproper medication management is a leading cause for patients to make return visits to the hospital. Often patients take the wrong dosage, mix incompatible prescription and over-the-counter drugs, do not know how to take the medication, or stop taking medication without the recommendation of their doctor. Making mistakes such as these with your medication can create serious problems that can make patients sicker or can prevent proper recovery.

Having a skilled nurse do medication management with your loved one’s medications can prevent serious health issues caused by mismanagement of medication. Our nurses can provide the following services:

  • Medication education - Your nurse will go through the medications with the patient and their caregiver to educate them on how to properly take the medication.
  • Pain management - If the patient is seriously struggling with pain. Our nurse will work with their doctor to discuss their pain medication to ensure that they are comfortable.
  • Medication audit - Your nurse will survey all medications that are being used to make sure that the patient is taking the proper dosage and not mixing any incompatible medications.

Our nurses are knowledgeable and friendly. They are happy to work with you and your family to ensure that your loved one is taking the proper medications. Feel free to ask us any questions that you may have about your loved one’s medications. We can clarify how to properly take certain medications.
