Your medicines while you’re in hospital
Epic Pharmacy will provide you with any medicines prescribed by your doctor during your hospital stay. We know coming to hospital can be stressful and we’re here to make sure you not only receive the right medicines, but to support your ongoing health and wellbeing.
Here are a few things to help familiarise yourself with the process for your hospital stay:
- Please ensure you review the Medication in Hospital brochure you are given on your admission. This brochure outlines the medicines and entitlement cares you should bring along with you, the process for paying for any medicines given to you during your stay and how to prepare for taking any new medicines once you return home
- Once you’re admitted, your doctor may ask one of our pharmacists to review your current medicines. This will ensure you’re taking the right medicines for your needs
- When you’re getting ready to leave hospital, one of our pharmacists may visit to make sure you understand how to take your medicines when you arrive home
- You may receive an overview of the medicines you’ve been given during your hospital stay. If you do receive a profile, please make sure you discuss this with you GP so they can monitor your recovery.
In addition to supplying your medicines while you’re in hospital, we also provide a wide range of prescription and over-the-counter medicines. You and your family are welcome to visit the pharmacy which is located just outside St Andrew’s Hospital Toowoomba.
When you return home, should you need assistance with managing your medicines, we can help organise Dose Administration Aid Sachets. If you take regular medicines, these are a simple and convenient way of managing your daily routine, with all your medicines being packed into sachets according to the day and time of dose. Easy to use and small enough to pop in your pocket, the medicine sachet means you can go anywhere, anytime, without missing a single dose.
Our opening hours are Monday to Friday from 8.30am until 6.00pm and Saturday from 9.00am until 12.00pm.
We look forward to helping you towards a speedy recovery during your stay at St Andrew’s Hospital Toowoomba.
