Institutional pharmacy is a pharmacy that provides a range of services to residents of nursing homes, hospitals, or hospice environments which do not have an on-site pharmacy. Without an on-site pharmacy, most long-term care facilities depend instead on institutional pharmacies to provide the necessary pharmacy products and services and to play an integral role in monitoring patient medication. In addition to providing pharmaceuticals, institutional pharmacies provide consulting services, which include monitoring the control, distribution, and administration of drugs and assisting in compliance with applicable regulations. The pharmacist also plays a role as medication therapy experts. Institutional pharmacists take responsibility for their patients' medication-related needs to ensure that their patients' medications are the most appropriate, most effective, safest possible, and are used correctly. Also identify, resolve, and prevent medication related problems that may interfere with goals of therapy. Services include special 24-hour delivery and on call services 365 days a year. The market is dominated by three leading providers. There are many smaller pharmacies as well

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
