What Is Medication Management?

"Med Management" is a service that we provide to ensure that our clients get the right prescriptions and monitoring whether they are taking them correctly. In a hospital setting, this is already done for patients. But things can get tricky when a person leaves the facility and has several complicated prescriptions for multiple conditions or an obstacle that makes it difficult for them to keep track of their medications on their own. Staying on top of things is an enormous responsibility for anyone, particularly for clients that suffer from memory loss, vision problems, mental health issues and young children. It is scary to watch a loved one take a large number of pills without complete certainty as to when and why they are taking them. Non-adherence is alarmingly common and should be taken seriously, especially if their medicine is a critical part of a patient's well-being and quality of life. It is not worth the risk of anyone taking too many or too few dosages. This error could have grave consequences. Fortunately, we have staff members that specialize in keeping our clients well-organized and will routinely monitor their activity. Our medication managers will get a complete list of their prescribed medicines and cross reference it to what they are taking. They perform this service periodically or quite frequently. With the right tools, the goal is to maximize outcomes and have clients become as independently capable of handling their medications as possible.

It is not uncommon for our medication managers to communicate their observations to someone's doctor. Their healthcare provider may consider these notes as they make critical decisions.

Do the current medications appear to be yielding the expected results? Does the client feel better or worse? When are they taking these drugs? Is the client presenting new side effects? When do these medicines expire?

If your loved one is an outpatient (no longer admitted to a hospital) and having difficulty keeping up with their meds, please contact us. We will gladly answer any questions. (757) 431-7321.
