Doctors, nurses and pharmacists are trained to help you use your medications safely. But YOU as the patient play a key role in your safety. Unfortunately in your conversations with the doctor or pharmacist, you might not recall all the medications you are taking, or forget to include over the counter and / or other herbal remedies. Sometimes those combinations can be dangerous.
Having a trained ABC Nurse Case Manager manage your medication can help ensure:
- All current medication is documented and available for review.
- You have a clear understanding of each prescription.
- The right medications are taken at the right time.
- Any reactions or allergies to medication is clearly communicated and documented.
