chapter 9 part 1

hospitals vary in size, type, & function
pharm]s exist in nearly all hospitals
techs have worked for hospitals since 1960
the ceo of the pharm] dept. is the pharm] director
the pharm] director is responsible overall for the hospital's pharm] service
the pharm] director duties are to manage budget, hire/fire staff, make strategic visions, ensure compliance with state & fed. laws/regulations, & make policies, procedures
the pharm] director determines the level & scope of offered service
the offered services in pharm] are the type of med. distribution systems, hrs.of operation, & provision of specialty services such as outpatient services
hospitals & community pharm]s generally have the same services
hospital pharm]s dispense parental drugs, biological agents, & potentially hazardous chemotherapy meds. (unlike community pharm]s)
in many hospital pharm]s, the inpatient drug distribution systems consists of unit doses, floor stock, iv admixtures, & tpn services
the inpatient drug distribution system is often highly automated, thereby improving quality/efficiency of services & minimizing med. errors
all computer systems are private
computer systems protect med. orders, unit doses, floor stock, narcotics in pharm], iv admixture services, & med. administration records
in hospitals, rx's are in med. order form
the types of med. orders are the admitting order, a new order, a stat order, & continuation order
these admitting order, a new order, a stat order, & continuation order are written by physician at admittance time, a new rx, received as primary priority, & perceived as refills
a medication order is a hospital rx
an admitting order is a rx for an admitted patient
a unit dose is a prepackaged med. for a single dose/administration
unit doses have been used since the 1960s
the increase of efficiency in unit doses is to make the drug formulation as ready to administer as possible
an inpatient drug delivery system is a pharm] system that delivers all types of needed drugs to hospital staying patients
the types of delivered drugs are commonly in unit doses, repackages, floor stock, iv's, & tpn services
to add patients unit dose, techs use a fill list
