this works well on base wards but not with acute medicine patients or with acute medicine outliers on specialist units ...(Original post by -Emmz-)
Do your pharmacists not see outliers on wards?
Do you have a system where all regular medication is dispensed for a patient and kept in his/her own locker?
Your pharmacy may work differently so it's hard for me to comment.
if the patient is in hospital foe less than 24 -36 hours there simply is not the time for pharmacy to dwadle along and sort that - especially when the medication is likely to change with every acute review ...
What should I do?
