The pharmacists at Atlantic Health System not only provide medications used in the hospitals, they are also medication use experts, provide information on the best ways to give medications, minimize the possibility of drug or food interactions, and avoid medication errors.
Below are some things you can do, as a patient, to help your caregivers provide you with the best treatment regarding your medications:
- Bring a list of the medications (including dosages) that you are currently using at home. These should include medications prescribed by your physician and those purchased over the counter, as well as herbal medications and nutraceuticals.
- Inform your caregivers of any medications you cannot take.
- Bring the name and telephone number of the pharmacy you use in case there are any questions about your prescriptions.
- Ask questions about any new medications you may receive if you don't understand what they are for or why they are being given to you.
