The Right Medication, Right Dose, at the Right Time
Our PCA@Home Program is designed to provide a 30-day supply of medications upon discharge for those residents transitioning back home from a short-term rehab stay. With a focus on convenience and safety, residents will have a 30-day supply of all the medications needed upon discharge without the hassle of stopping at the pharmacy for the next 30 days. Our PCA@Home Program is supports making sure residents are on their appropriate medication regimen based upon the discharging physician’s prescribed orders. This program is proven to reduce hospital readmissions by preventing the resident from missing a dose, as their medications will be packaged in an easy-to-use punch card that is clearly marked with the medication name, strength and directions for use: The Right Medication, Right Dose, at the Right Time.
