Monmouth Medical Center Southern Campus

Department of Pharmacy is a hospital pharmacy which takes care of inpatients and outpatients. Recent changes to the pharmacy practice model allow the pharmacy to operate in a decentralized practice manner. Monmouth Medical Center – Southern Campus Department of Pharmacy is committed to ensure patient satisfaction and continuity of care.

The outpatients cared for by the pharmacy are registered mainly to the emergency department, radiology, wound care, surgery, and outpatient infusion center. The hospital pharmacy takes care of a growing outpatient oncology/hematology population, onsite in the outpatient infusion center. The hospital participates in the 340B drug pricing program, the benefits of which apply to the population they serve.

The inpatient pharmacy is centralized near the emergency department and the operating room. Decentralized services are planned through one pharmacist rounding and counseling patients on two adult inpatient telemetry units, and the Geriatric Emergency Medicine (GEM) pharmacist (7 days per week) performing consults in the GEM unit and follow-up on the inpatient Acute Care of the Elderly (ACE) unit. The decentralized model is supported by computerized prescriber order entry (CPOE), automated dispensing cabinets (ADC) on the units, and bed-side barcode medication administration. Technicians support the pharmacists by restocking the ADCs and delivering non-stocked medications to the units from the central pharmacy. In the central pharmacy, the technicians assist pharmacists by answering phones, filling labels, compounding and picking medications, and performing deliveries. Centralized clinical pharmacists answer phones, verify orders, and oversee technician activities and IV room compounding.

The hospital services supported by the pharmacy department include pediatrics in the emergency department, critical care, geriatrics, oncology psychiatry, general medicine, emergency medicine, neurology, orthopedic surgery, general surgery, ophthalmologic surgery, podiatric surgery, and ear nose and throat surgery.
