The Coshocton Regional Medical Center Pharmacy holds patient safety as
a top priority in the management of medications necessary for inpatient
and emergency care. Incorporated in every task is the focus on accuracy
and detail to ensure every patient receives the right medication at the
right dose and at the right time. Verifications of patient’s name
and birthdate are only the final step in a complex verification process
that is a critical element in quality patient care.
Medication dosing, chemotherapy and intravenous therapies are reviewed
for accuracy by our skilled pharmacy staff before any medications ever
reach the patient. Our nurses then provide additional control by matching
the medication dosage to the doctor’s orders and verifying the patient’s
identity before delivering doses or treatments.
Our on-site pharmacy compliments our medical services by supplying the
necessary medication with the efficiency, accuracy and timeliness our
patients require. In addition, our team of pharmacists and pharmacy technicians
are available to our nursing staff to assist with patient questions or
concerns about specific medications. The pharmacy is staffed daily, so
patients and family can speak with a pharmacist if needed.
