PeaceHealth St. Joseph Medical Center
Measure: A complete and reconciled list of the patient's medication is communicated to the next provider of service when the patient is transferred to another setting, service, practioner or level of care within or outside of the hospital.

Time Period Ending:  3/31/2013

What We Are Doing:

Nurses review all of your medications when you come to St. Joseph Hospital. These are entered into your medical record and then reviewed and confirmed by your physician. This list is maintained and updated with any changes during your stay so that every member of the hospital staff, in every department, can quickly tell which medications you are taking.  

This updated list is also made available to your physician or other primary care provider in the community to prevent confusion about your medications at your next office visit.
