Have you ever wondered if the prescription and over-the-counter medications you take are interacting properly?
On Jan. 9, Wood County Hospital is hosting a free Brown Bag Day: Medication Safety Review program from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the hospital meeting rooms.
Wood County Hospital pharmacist Todd Leopold, PharmD, will give a presentation about medication safety. Community members are invited to bring in all their medications, over-the-counter and herbal products for review by pharmacy students from the University of Findlay.
The students will go over how each medication is to be taken, how to store medications, screen for interactions between the medications and supplements, and answer any question.
Patients many times use multiple physicians and healthcare providers and multiple pharmacies, and therefore, no single medical provider may know every medication and supplement a patient uses. This program provides an opportunity for a pharmacist to review all herbal and dietary supplements, over-the-counter drugs and prescriptions. The pharmacists will them provide a complete written list for the patients to take home as a reference and tool to take to doctor's appointments or into their pharmacy when needed.
Attendees are invited to bring a lunch or purchase a meal ticket in the hospital cafeteria for $2. Pre-registration is encouraged. To register, call (419) 354-8863 option 3 or online at www.woodcountyhospital.org.
