Pharmacist completing paperwork

Pharmacists in hospitals do more than fill prescriptions. Pharmacists are experts on the thousands of medications available today, how each one works in the body and the ways to use each one safely and effectively. They advise doctors and nurses on the best medications to treat your condition. Pharmacists also monitor every patient's medication therapy and provide quality checks to detect and prevent harmful drug interactions, reactions or errors.
