An independent consultant has described Emmy Monash’s medication practice as “exemplary”.
Independent Clinical Pharmacist Consultant, Darius Ignasiak, has submitted a report to a recent Emmy Monash Pharmacy & Therapeutics Committee Meeting. The report highlighted that in an average month at Emmy Monash there are 19,000 to 26,000 individual doses of medications administered to residents. With an error rate of only 2-3 per quarter (approximately one a month) the success rate is 99.99%.
“This demonstrates exemplary accuracy and medication management practice”, commented Mr Ignasiak.
This exceptional result would not be achievable without the holistic approach to clinical care by our pharmacy, Cura Pharmacy, doctors and our clinical team led by Clinical Care Coordinator Naomi Bala.
