Medication Management Services in Vermont and New Hampshire
Helping you prevent medication problems and accidents.
Medication Management is crucial to preventing accidents with prescriptions. Medication-related problems and errors are preventable with the right care and communication. While our caregivers do not administer medications, they are trained to know their clients’ medication schedules. They can also help with opening bottles and giving reminders that prevent overdoses or missed medications. Our nurses, who provide oversight for all of our caregivers, communicate with your loved one’s doctors to ensure all medications are necessary and up to date.
Nurse case oversight is one of our primary tools for medication safety. A certified nurse oversees every client, providing consistency in care and clarity. Our nurse case managers communicate with the caregivers and medical care team to ensure everyone is on the same page regarding medications and health conditions.
Our nurses are with you every step of the way. They check in periodically and review your case during transitions, such as moving from a nursing home or hospital to home. Medications lists should be checked for accuracy frequently, especially when there is a change in primary care providers or new conditions develop. Building relationships with everyone on the care team, including the primary care provider, ensures every aspect of care is covered. Collaboration with doctors and everyone involved, especially during transitions, is important to understand how to provide the right care at the right time.
