Meds to Beds successfully launched at HMWB last week in the Med Surg and Observation units. This new program conveniently dispenses prescriptions to the patient’s bedside at discharge. Patients have responded positively to the initial rollout, and providers are ready to leverage Meds to Beds in their areas. Other HMWB units are slated to launch as follows:
- Week of Nov. 2: Mother/Baby, Outpatient Surgery
- Week of Nov. 30: ED
Meds to Beds provides a convenient choice for our patients, so they don’t need to go to a pharmacy to get the medications they’ll need at home. This ensures they have the medications that were prescribed before they leave the hospital – one more example of how we provide seamless care for our patients.
