We are an institutional pharmacy that specializes in dispensing medications to healthcare facilities.

Medication Dispensing

Skilled Care Pharmacy is an institutional pharmacy that specializes in servicing long-term care facilities. That means that we fill and deliver medications to healthcare facilities, including long-term care facilities for the elderly, assisted living sites, residential care, developmental disability services, schools and hospice facilities. Here are details about how our services help our customers' staff and, ultimately improve the care that their residents experience.

An efficient system

We dispense drugs daily by delivering them directly to each nursing station via one of our own uniformed couriers. Medications are pre-packaged in unit of use for each resident, on a medication delivery cart customized to meet your facility's needs, thereby reducing staff time spent handling medications. All resident medications are tracked electronically to simplify reordering.


recordkeeping

To make recordkeeping as accurate, efficient and timely as possible, our integrated information management system generates medical records for each facility and resident, which are updated daily.

Our custom-designed medication administration record documents:

  • Medication therapy
  • Specific diagnosis
  • International Classification of Diseases (ICD) codes and side effects and more

Skilled Care Pharmacy also provides customized management reports documenting:

  • Medication history
  • Laboratory orders
  • Diet orders
  • Summary by drug class and more


Emergency meds and STAT orders

For non-routine drug administration, Skilled Care Pharmacy maintains an Emergency Medication Kit and/ or automated dispensing unit within each facility that is kept fully stocked with a range of emergency medications. We keep in place all the appropriate control mechanisms necessary to maintain the safety and integrity of this service. When you need something in a hurry, Skilled Care Pharmacy delivers any time, on time.
