Medication reconciliation Is a process where our pharmacists work together with patients, families and other health care providers to ensure accurate and comprehensive medication information is communicated consistently across transitions of care (ie. from hospital to community and vice versa).
Lack of communication between community and hospital healthcare providers is common. With a lack of communication, there is an increased risk of medication errors occurring (especially as a result of unintended medication changes).
At River Heights Pharmacy, our pharmacists ensure lines of communication are always open with other healthcare providers and healthcare centers so that medication errors are avoided.
