Pharmacy

Pharmacy Helthcare Facility

Pharmacy is the science and technique of preparing and dispensing drugs. It is a health profession that links health sciences with chemical sciences and aims to ensure the safe and effective use of pharmaceutical drugs.

We strive to provide access everywhere clinicians need us to be via online reference, mobile apps, or clinical alerts and embedded links within your EMR. No matter when, where, or how they access drug information, clinicians can quickly reach clinically relevant data. Our publishing model is intended to deliver meaningful clinical alerts and clear, concise drug content that hone in on key information clinicians can quickly synthesize and apply to their decision-making process.

The hospital pharmacy is integrated with the dispensing section, manufacturing section, quality assurance section, and clinical pharmacy services. The requirement of personnel for an inpatient pharmacy depends on the nature and quantum of services provided by the department. The requirement of hospital pharmacists in hospitals is based on workload and number of beds in hospital. Generally, small hospitals require a minimum of three pharmacists, but this varies with the number of beds in each hospital.

Hospital pharmacy departments require competent and professionally trained staff. The director of pharmacy should possess a postgraduate qualification in hospital pharmacy, pharmacology, or pharmaceutics and acts as coordinator between pharmacy and nonpharmacy staff.
