Pharmacy staff handles and distribute investigation medications. The Pharmacy has implemented Pyxis Profile Medstations that are specifically designed to support patient care in each Nursing area. This automation enhances the ability of Clinical Pharmacists to work closely with physicians and nurses in assessing the impact of medication use and helping to meet therapeutic goals.
