At Pine Acres Rehabilitation & Living Center, medication management is more than “just distributing medications.” Our professional nurses RN’s and LPN’s, follow the highest quality of standards in administering medication as ordered by the physician and will discuss the medication with you and why it is being given. The nurse also observes the effectiveness of your medication and provides documentation of not only the positive effects, but also any adverse effects it may have. Your physician is kept updated by the nursing staff on a regular and/or as needed basis.
Additionally, all prescribed medications are reviewed by a licensed pharmacist on an on-going basis to ensure appropriateness of the medication versus the condition it was prescribed for and to help prevent drug-related interactions when more than one medication is being given. Each month, an “on-site” review is done by a pharmacist from our pharmacy provider with additional recommendations made as needed.
