  • Stay Safe With Your Medicines

    It is important to understand the medicines you take. While you are in our hospital, your doctor will prescribe all the medicines that are needed to improve your health.

    To assist your doctor in prescribing the most appropriate medicines:

    • You need to be familiar with the medicines you take. This information should include the dose, how often and why you are taking the medicine.
    • Provide a list of your medicines. This list should include the name of the doctor(s) that prescribed the medications and any over-the-counter medications you take.
    • If you do not have a list of medicines, bring your medicines from home to the hospital. A care team member will review these with you to create a list. After the medication bottles are reviewed, we encourage care givers to take the medication bottles back home.
    • Tell your doctor if you have had any sensitivity or allergic responses to medications.

    Talk with a member of your care team about your medications and any new prescriptions. Ask:

    • What the medicine is for and how to take it— how often, how long, with or without food
    • What the side effects might be
    • When to call your doctor if you have any side effects
    • How the medicine will react with food or other medicines you are prescribed
