The Medication Management Clinic at The Bellevue Hospital currently provides services for:
- Comprehensive Medication review
- Anti-coagulation (monitoring "blood thinner" medications)
"Blood thinner" medications are considered high risk medications by the Institute for Safe Medication Practices (ISMP). The Medication Management Clinic is designed to help the patient, in collaboration with the physician, maximize therapy and avoid unwanted side effects.
Specially trained pharmacists see patients who have been enrolled in the clinic. During the visit, the pharmacist will discuss medications, diet, recent heath history and any other pertinent information related to the visit.
A small drop of blood will be obtained through a finger stick. From this drop of blood, the pharmacist will be able to determine if any changes to the blood thinner medication are needed. The patient is immediately informed of the results and the physician receives a report from the visit.
The Medication Management Clinic is located in the Cardiopulmonary Department inside The Bellevue Hospital at 1400 W. Main Street, Bellevue, Ohio.
To be seen in the Clinic, a referral from the patient's physician is required. A pharmacist will contact the patient to schedule an appointment.
