PeaceHealth Ketchikan Medical Center
Measure: At the time of arrival or admission, a complete list of the patient's home medications is documented and compared to medications ordered at the start of the patient's stay and discrepancies are reconciled and documented.

Time Period Ending:  3/31/2013

What We Are Doing:
Keeping track of the variety of medications you take can be a challenge for you and your physician.  Nurses will review all of your medications with you when you come to the hospital.  A current list of your medications is then entered into your medical record.  Your physician will then review and confirm your current medication list.  This process is monitored monthly.  Questions may be routed to: Barbara Bigelow, VP Quality at 907-821-1990.
