Clinical programs include formal protocols with certification in pharmacokinetic dosing of aminoglycosides and vancomycin, anticoagulation, insulin management, renal target, and antibiotic surveillance (including IV to PO). The pharmacists are decentralized utilizing wireless telephones and dedicated computer workstations on the Nursing units. Staff are encouraged to provide pharmacotherapy management utilizing a network-based medication intervention monitoring program, respond to medical emergencies (e.g. Code Blue), and participate in medication utilization evaluations (MUE’s). The Pharmacists work with the full-time Safe Medication Practice Pharmacist in evaluating adverse drug events (ADE’s) and medication safety initiatives.
