Angela Sandlin, PharmD, Pharmacy Director:
As a pharmacist, one of my favorite jobs is helping people learn about their medications. It’s amazing how much better you can take your medicine if you understand what the medication is, what it’s supposed to do, and what are the best ways to take it. All of those things are so important in getting the most out of your medicine.
If you use Baptist [Health] Retail Pharmacy, we can easily have your physician send your prescription here. You can pick it up conveniently curbside, if you prefer. It’s a very convenient service, and our patients love it.
Meds to Beds is a program we’re very excited about. If you’re in the hospital as a patient, if you’re having a surgery and being discharged, you can choose Meds to Beds, which means that your prescriber will send your medication prescriptions to our pharmacy. We can fill them and bring the medicine right to your bedside. At that point, we can explain everything you need to know about your medicine, answer any questions, and make sure that you understand everything that you need to know about your treatment. If there is something that’s unclear, we can answer those questions for you right away so that you’re empowered to get the most out of your medication.
We know that when you’re getting out of the hospital, you just want to get home. You want to get back to your life and you want to get on with your treatment so that you can stay healthy, and that is one great advantage of Meds to Beds. We hear it from our patients all the time — they love Meds to Beds, and they love the convenience.
