The art of preparing medications dates back to the origins of pharmacy. At our pharmacy we still practice the time proven art of compounding using modern variations of the "mortar and pestle" to prepare unique and individualized medications. Working with your doctor, compounding allows our pharmacists to customize the strength and dosage form of a medication according to individual needs.
Medical Equipment and Supplies
Going home from the hospital just got a little easier. When it comes to being in the hospital, most of us are anxious to go home as soon as possible. At our pharmacy we help make going home easier by providing all of the medical equipment and supplies you and your doctor need to make the transition. We have wheelchairs, walkers, canes, and bathroom equipment, as well as a complete line of medical and surgical supplies. Our staff will work with you, your doctor, and your hospital to see that you get everything you need, when you need it. And they will personally deliver, setup, and follow each piece of equipment to insure its proper function and complete patient understanding. So, when you’re ready to go home - no matter which hospital you’re in - ask your doctor to contact us. Most of our medical equipment can be obtained under a rental agreement for anticipated short term use.
Patient Care Services
At the pharmacy, our goal is to help you in any way we can to minimize the risks associated with your illness. High blood pressure is a good example of a risk that can be effectively controlled with the help of proper monitoring. Check with us to see how we can help you with:
- Blood Pressure Monitoring - come by any time and we will gladly check your blood pressure. Monitoring your blood pressure helps to insure you are getting the most out of your medication and can reduce some of the risks associated with high blood pressure, including stroke.
Nursing Home and Assisted Living Center Services
- Blood Sugar Monitoring - proper control of your blood sugar can prevent many of the very serious problems associated with diabetes including loss of vision and amputations. Ask us how we can assist you in effectively controlling your blood sugar.
Our service is second to none when it comes to taking care of our patients in a Nursing Home or in an Assisted Living Center. Many times, drug therapies become very complicated requiring constant scrutiny by specially trained and experienced pharmacists to insure the desired outcomes your physician intended. If you or a loved one needs a pharmacist to competently take care of your medication needs, we are the pharmacy to trust. In addition, we offer specialized medication packaging. Tablet and capsule prescriptions can be bubble-packed to improve medication handling and insure accuracy. These bubble-packed punch cards are color-coded to assist in administering the correct dose at the right time. At our pharmacy we truly care for our patients with total dedication and compassion.
