Complete Medication Review
The Best Care
The numbers are staggering: On average there are 1.3 million visits to hospital emergency rooms due to medication errors, each year, according to CDC statistics. Of these, 450,000 ER visits are for medication errors in older patients (over 65 years of age). This means that our medical systems must make sure that medications are prescribed correctly to prevent side effects, overdoses and that patients understand how to use medications.
The clinical pharmacist at Miriam Medical Clinics reviews all medications, for prescribed and over-the-counter before the patient leaves the clinic. An appointment can be made with the pharmacist to ensure that you, the patient, are knowledgeable about taking your medication correctly. The full medication reviews will increase your ability to take your medication correctly, to avoid side effects, drug interactions, and to make sure your medications are efficiently taken to their fullest benefit.
