ED WAIT TIME
Our Pharmacy is helping to save lives and promotes a better quality of life. Our Registered Pharmacist is a part of the patient’s interdisciplinary care team.
There’s no doubt that today’s advanced medications save lives, improve quality of life and prevent more serious illness. Pharmacists are on the front lines in preventive and treatment care, working with providers to select and monitor the right medication, spending time with patients to ensure medication is taken correctly, is affordable, and has minimal, manageable side effects.
Receiving awards for patient safety and clinical pharmacy
The Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) grants awards to hospitals that provide exceptional care. Ellenville Regional Hospital’s Collaborative team received four HRSA awards for ERH’s Patient Safety and Clinical Pharmacy Program including one for Life Saving.
How your hospital pharmacy makes a difference in your care
Training new Pharmacists in clinical pharmacy excellence
Pharmacy is growing as a career choice. Mike Stearns RPh, ERH’s Director of Pharmacy, is a Faculty Preceptor for Albany College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences, University of Rhode Island College of Pharmacy, Long Island University, Arnold and Marie Schwartz College of Pharmacy, and St. John Fisher College, Wegmans School of Pharmacy. Students train in our pharmacy in one or more of three program tracks:
Ask the pharmacist
We’re a small hospital and we have more time to speak to our patients. We listen to patient and family questions and concerns. Our pharmacists enjoy a dialogue to help people understand their medications and explain how to take their medicines for the best results. Please ask questions and tell us your concerns. ERH’s Pharmacy provides services in support of our hospital’s mission, our patients and our many departments. ERH’s pharmacy is open Monday through Friday and when the pharmacy is closed, a pharmacist is available by phone for a consultation. The pharmacist also has remote access to the electronic medical record system and reviews all medication orders within 24 hours.
Our Board, leadership and staff are focused on quality and compassion. Being the finest small hospital in the country means you benefit from our innovations and initiatives, such as our approach to population health in our community and opioid reduction programs. Our dedication to improvements in Ellenville Regional Hospital has won awards and recognition nationally.
