The hospital pharmacy serving Summersville Regional Medical Center allows an uninterrupted continuum of care through its commitment to deliver quality to every patient prescription. Through their service and coordinated service, optimal pharmaceutical care is an integral part of the health care team at SRMC. The delivery of comprehensive pharmaceutical needs to every patient is accomplished through implementation of practices designed to foster safe and effective use of medications supported by drug expertise, technology, educated professionals.
The team delivering pharmaceutical care to patients in the hospital is also working to improve the medical climate in which prescriptions are written by participating in an antibiotic stewardship program. This program promotes the appropriate use of antimicrobials, improves patient outcomes, reduces microbial resistance, and decreases the spread of infections caused by multidrug-resistant organisms. The program also helps providers to clarify which antibiotics are most effective for specific diagnosis for patients in their region. It’s just another way SRMC goes above and beyond to make sure every patient receives the best care possible.
