KCH Pharmacists Are Vital Links Across The Full Spectrum Of Patient Care.

The Pharmacy Department at Knox Community Hospital does more than fill prescriptions. KCH pharmacists are vital links across the full spectrum of patient care. They work closely with physicians, nurses and other health care professionals to help you make the best use of medication in ways you may never see.

Modern medications are increasingly complex and powerful. They have great healing power when used properly. KCH pharmacists are drug-use experts who not only distribute medications, but also oversee the consistency of medication use and guide patients and health professionals in the safest use of those medications to improve all medication-related care.

Our pharmacists are highly educated professionals with a minimum of five years of pharmacy education. The director of pharmacy also completed a two-year residency in hospital pharmacy at Mount Carmel Medical Center and has a Masters degree. The pharmacists at Knox Community Hospital have over 155 combined years of experience.

The pharmacy department oversees all aspects of medication use within the hospital. KCH pharmacists work under sterile conditions to prepare powerful and complex injectable medications such as those used for cancer treatment.

Our pharmacists advise physicians, nurses and other health care professionals on new drugs, effective therapies and the selection and administration of specific medications. They perform critical computerized and other quality checks to detect and prevent harmful drug interactions, adverse reactions and errors.

KCH pharmacists counsel patients and their families in proper medication dosage and usage. They monitor patient responses to medications to ensure optimum therapeutic benefits and the best outcomes for every patient.

Our pharmacy department is committed to making sure that you or your loved one receives the right drug, in the right dose, at the right time. The Pharmacy is located on the first floor of the hospital and they provide pharmaceutical care 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
