Using Medications Safely

Our physicians, nurses, and pharmacists explain when and how to take your medicine at the hospital. When you go home, it’s up to you to take your medications as directed by your doctor.

You may see more than one doctor and have prescriptions filled at more than one pharmacy. Keep a record of the names and doses of your medications, and the reasons you are taking them. Make sure you share this information with your doctors and pharmacists so they can check for potential problems.

Contact Your Doctor or Pharmacist

If you have questions about your medications or side effects, call your doctor or pharmacist.
