The Department of Pharmacy Services provides specialized pediatric services to St. Joseph’s Children’s Hospital with a satellite pharmacy dedicated to pediatric inpatient care, as well as a clinical pharmacist for pediatrics and neonatology. As strong advocates for medication safety in this vulnerable population, the Department of Pharmacy Services is committed to ongoing performance improvement to ensure that the best care is delivered to our pediatric and neonatal patients.
The Pediatric Satellite Pharmacy operates seven days a week and maintains stringent processes in dispensing patient-specific medication doses and high-risk medications. Hospital pharmacists and technicians work with physicians and nurses to deliver safe and effective medication therapy to our patients. A clinical pharmacist dedicated to the Children's Hospital collaborates regularly with other healthcare providers on multidisciplinary patient care rounds and is actively involved in protocol and policy development and multidisciplinary committees. Clinical pharmacy services are also provided on a consultative basis to various pediatric subspecialties and outpatient care areas, such as the Cystic Fibrosis Clinic. Our team of pharmacists provides education to medical, nursing and pharmacy staff and will also provide individualized education on discharge medications to patients and caregivers.
