The Labette Health pharmacy is committed to providing safe medication therapy that improves each patient's quality of care. The pharmacy team works closely with the medical and nursing staff to ensure that you receive the best, effective medication therapy while working diligently to prevent drug interactions and adverse drug events. The pharmacy provides daily oral and IV medications for all in-patients only. The pharmacy team is also a key resource for drug information.
In July of 2012 Labette Health implemented computer bedside devices in all our patient rooms, allowing us to implement bedside medication verification. This is a point-of-care process that allows a nurse to match a drug to a patient by scanning a bar code on the medication and a bar code on the patient’s wristband. This assures that the ‘five rights’ of medication administration (right patient, right dose, right time, right amount, and right delivery) are checked electronically before administering medications, preventing the possibility of any medication errors.
