The Pharmacy Lab in Hospital 57357 will start working at 6 am instead of 8am, adding two extra hours to the regular work load of its staff. In pursuit of maximizing its patients’ experience, the lab is thus enabled to test blood samples of chemo therapy patients early enough to release them rapidly and enable others to find empty space to receive their treatment.
It is noteworthy that the pharmacy lab is running blood tests on chemo patients for the purpose of:
- Measuring medication levels in the blood
- Assessing the effectiveness of the drug and the extent of its side effects.
According to the test results, the treatment is resumed as is or drug dosages are being modified if necessary. The clinical pharmacy is already carrying out 30000 drug preparations on a monthly basis.
