Pharmacists see patients through discharge.

Hosp Case Manag. 2014 Feb;22(2):16-7


At The Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha, pharmacists are part of a multidisciplinary team and see many patients in person starting on Day 1. Every patient history is either taken by a pharmacist or reviewed and approved by the pharmacists. They review the discharge prescriptions, conduct medication reconciliation, and educate the patients on their medications and the importance of taking them as directed. Case managers work with pharmacists to identify patients who are at high risk for readmissions and need follow-up calls and collaborated to develop a medication instruction sheet.
