UM BWMC partners with Walgreens on bedside delivery prescription service
GLEN BURNIE, Md. — The University of Maryland Baltimore Washington Medical Center recently partnered with Walgreens to offer a free bedside delivery program for patients to receive prescriptions before being discharged.
If a patient would like to take advantage of beside delivery, the bedside nurse and/or any member of the care team sends a referral to a pharmacy technician who will go to the bedside and discuss the option with the patient. They will then start the process of delivering their prescription order when they are ready for discharge.
This is the first of its kind partnership in Anne Arundel County with Walgreens, the healthcare provider announced.
“Providing necessary medications to patients before the patients leave the medical center is one less thing they have to worry about when they are discharged," noted Steve Bouyakkas, Walgreens district pharmacy supervisor.
UM BWMC hopes this program will save discharged patients a trip to the pharmacy and ensure they have their prescribed medications.
