Greene County General Hospital’s pharmacy provides safe, accurate, cost-effective drug therapy. Pharmacists and technicians partner with physicians to provide optimal pharmaceutical care.
Education is an important part of a pharmacists role. This includes medication education for patients who have been prescribed medications with complex instructions, such as anticoagulants, and diabetic teaching for blood glucose testing and insulin injection.
Our pharmacists also play a huge role in accurately and effectively caring for patients. They carefully prepare accurate home medication histories and medication lists to prevent errors. These lists are used by physicians to order medication in the hospital, and are continually reviewed for errors and omissions. The pharmacy department is also responsible for administering our bar code medication program, an effective method to ensure that every patient gets the correct medication and dosage every time.
