Medication Management and Coordination
Our Registered Nurses help to educate your loved one about the best practices for taking their medications as well as the potential side effects that can take place. Although it can be confusing to differentiate all the medications your loved one may be taking, having the support of a Registered Nurse to rely on will give you peace of mind that your loved ones are taking their medication as prescribed every day. We can develop a medication schedule suited to your loved one's needs and keep track of medication effectiveness.
It is important to keep track of your loved one’s prescription and non-prescription medications from the time of day it must be taken to the amount left and expiration dates. In the event of medical emergencies, family members should be able to fill out your loved one’s medical history. In an emergency, it will make it easier for a health care provider to treat and administer medicine to your loved one so that negative reactions do not occur. Coastal Home Care’s Medication Management Service puts this information at your fingertips and may help your loved one stay safe by having this information handy.
Prevent Improper Usage of Medications
When medications are improperly taken, negative symptoms may occur. In many situations, individuals may even be admitted to the hospital. Allowing the Coastal Home Care team of Registered Nurses assist your loved one with organizing and reminders to take medications properly can help prevent the potential for dangerous drug interactions.
Locating Additional Resources
Individuals who are insured, underinsured, or would prefer affordable access to their prescribed medicine, need numerous medication resources to help them see what will work best for their needs. While there are affordable resources available, your loved ones may be unable to find these options on their own. Coastal Home Care can help coordinate and find those medication resources for your loved one to make the process easier.
