Brandon Regional Hospital
Pharmacists all around the globe are working hard on the front lines during this pandemic to make sure our patients are safe and their medication therapy is optimized during this time. At my specific institution we are responsible for assessing COVID-19 patients who are positive and assess for proper therapy that is on board. We have pharmacists on our team responsible for coming up with drug protocols for the proposed drug therapies for our COVID-19 patients which include laboratory parameters, monitoring for adverse effects, contraindications/precautions, etc.
We are essential during this time and it is great to see our community of pharmacists come together during this rough time to bring about the best patient outcomes!
