Across the United States, approximately 2.3 million people become ill or have adverse side effects from medical therapy each year. Also, adverse drug events account for about 4.7% of US hospital admissions and contribute to an estimated $3.8 million in costs per hospital each year.
Here at Tri City Surgery Center we take medication delivery very seriously. We believe that you, the patient, are a key member of the team that needs to be involved in enhancing accuracy of your treatment. In order to provide the highest quality safe care, we would like to document the most accurate and complete list of your current medications. This would include the name, dose and frequency of each medication you take. Since this information is detailed and may be difficult to remember, we ask you to bring a list of your current medications (including multi-vitamins, herbals, special creams or lotions, laxatives, and any other over-the-counter remedies you take) when you come for your surgery.
When you arrive at the ASC, you will be asked to review the information we have regarding your medications in our medical record as well as the last dose taken.
We are dedicated to providing the highest quality, safest care possible, and we appreciate your partnership to support us in achieving this goal. Please feel free to contact us at (928) 445 - 1919 with any questions.
