Atlanta Medical Center Department of Pharmacy is an integral part of many programs within the medical center, allowing department members to play key roles in the interdisciplinary teams that provide patient care.
Clinical Pharmacy Services Program is led by a board-certified clinical pharmacy manager in the areas of critical care and nutrition support. The clinical pharmacists practice in areas that closely match their clinical expertise and are integrated into patient care functions. Members of our medical and nursing staff rely on our pharmacists for drug information, drug therapy review and dosing/medication recommendations. The clinical pharmacy program provides metabolic support consult services to help facilitate a patient’s optimal nutritional status, along with a pharmacokinetic consult service to help ensure desired antibiotic therapeutic outcomes.
The pharmacy department provides 24-hour central pharmacy services, including an ISO Class 5 sterile products laboratory to provide high-quality standards in IV product preparation, advanced computer equipment including Pyxis® Connect features, on-line drug information resources, automated point-of-access dispensing and a hospital-wide integrated pharmacy program.
