EIRMC’s Pharmacy, which provides clinical pharmacy services to all nursing areas, boasts a staff of highly qualified registered pharmacists and pharmacy technicians.
EIRMC was the first hospital in Idaho to use eMar (Electronic Medication Administration Record) to reduce medication errors. When it’s time for you to receive medication, a nurse scans the medication and your wristband. If, for some reason, the medication doesn’t match the order by the physician, the nurse is automatically alerted and will make the correction.
Using bar coding technology ensures that:
- the right patient
- receives the right medication
- in the right dose
- at the right time
- by the right route.
If you wish to speak to a member of the pharmacy staff, please ask your nurse to contact us. We want to ensure you fully understand the reason for your drug therapy and that you can and should be actively involved in the decision making process.
