Resident in the SpotLIGHT
LECOM Senior Living Center (SLC) makes every effort to improve transition of care and medication adherence. Sebastian Choi, Pharm. D., Millcreek Community Hospital’s Geriatric Pharmacy Resident, is leading the implementation of a new service to short stay residents of the LECOM Senior Living Center. This project will be Dr. Choi’s research project for his residency. Prior to discharge, the patient’s medications will be reviewed for accuracy and patient and the pharmacist carefully will explain all medications that the patient is receiving at discharge. Patients also will have the option to have their first month’s supply filled at the LECOM Senior Living Center Pharmacy prior to discharge. This program addresses some of the primary reasons patients do not properly adhere to their medications.
