Kyle, one of our newest pharmacists who also offers patient care services, recently did a presentation at the Two Lick Valley Area Senior Center last month for all the residents and staff on medication safety.
Upon arrival, we were greeted with smiling faces from the volunteers and directors at the senior center, who went out of their way to make sure Kyle had everything he needed for his talk.
Following the presentation, Kyle offered free blood pressure screenings and answered a variety of questions from those at the center that day.
The pharmacists and team at Gatti cannot stress medication safety enough, and the following points are part of what Kyle covered last month:
1. Patients are encouraged to ask a lot of questions about their prescriptions, such as:
2. Over-the-Counter Medications:
3. Talk to your doctor:
It is important to also note that not all medications should be crushed prior to taking. Please speak with Gatti about all aspects of your prescriptions before leaving the pharmacy. Your health and safety is our number one concern.
Another great experience in the books -- we love going out in the community and educating about different aspects in health.
