Hospital Discharge Program

The hospital discharge program is a phone follow-up visit done by the SCFHT pharmacist upon referral from the Lake of the Woods District Hospital.

To be eligible patients must be:

  • 65 and over;
  • Discharged from the Lake of the Woods District Hospital;
  • And taking 4 or more medications,
  • Or, taking at least 1 Institute for Safe Medical Practices (ISMP) medication

 

The pharmacist works to help identify and solve medication related problems that occur in a patient’s transition from hospital to home.
