Pharmacy

At the Onslow Memorial Hospital Pharmacy, medication safety is always our top priority. We rely on the most advanced technology and equipment to help us meet that goal of safe, reliable patient care, as we serve approximately 90 to 95 patients throughout the hospital each day. For instance, our state-of-the-art computer system can detect patients' drug allergies to prevent allergic reactions, and based on height and weight information, our system will calculate maximum and minimum dosing for a specific patient. Our pharmacy computer system will also detect drug combinations that could cause side effects.

We operate in a newly remodeled practice environment with a brand-new laminar flow hood and refrigeration unit, and we use the most innovative IV admixture equipment available. In addition to unit dose distribution and IV admixture, our pharmacy provides pharmacokinetic consult and operates a clinical pharmacy practice.

The department is staffed with certified, competent technicians and pharmacists, and upon request, our pharmacists will provide bedside drug consultation for hospital patients.
