Paoli Hospital expanding ED pharmacy medication list support

 

Submitted by Al Celidonio, director of Pharmacy-Paoli Hospital

 

Many of our HMS Physicians are aware of the tremendous job our ED Pharmacist Heather Troup provides in the ED gathering detailed medication histories for our patients being admitted. This service has been in place for a few years but limited to HMS admissions only.

 

Beginning Monday, January 25, we are expanding the service to all admitted patients with new hours on Monday-Friday from 10:30am-12midnight.  Also, weekend coverage will be coming in early spring.

 

Heather Troup will be joined by Pharmacist Deena Kim, PharmD, and Certified Pharmacy Technicians Roxann Fuchs and Kristy Schwarzman. Our team’s location is outside the Trauma rooms, and we can be reached at extension 2558.

 

We look forward to working with you providing a medication list that you can rely upon while expediting the admission process in a safer manner.
