Emergency Services

Your Health is our 24-Hour Responsibility

In case of emergency assistance with medications, Pharmacare has developed a full-service program that is available to clients and caretakers. The important highlights of this program include:

  • 24/7 on-call pharmacist team
  • 24/7 in-house disaster team consisting of drivers, nurses, pharmacists, technicians, homecare supply installers, fitters for stockings, scooters, and wheelchairs, and pharmacists with injection certification for flu, anaphylaxis, etc.
  • Anti-retroviral medication, such as Tamiflu, is stocked for all residents and staff in a secure location; creatinine clearance is calculated for all residents prior to flu season to ensure proper dosing is supplied.
  • Masks, gloves, diabetic stock (such as glucometers, strips, glucose tablets and lancets), and water are stored in a secure location and ready to mobilize when needed.
  • A disaster plan that has been tested and proven several times in recent years when we have been called late in the evening,¬†after a fire occurred, and were able to package and deliver medications and supplies to over 100 residents prior to the morning dosing time.

Providing full spectrum, affordable healthcare is a tireless process but Pharmacare will continue to invest and develop this area of our company so that our patients’ health is never compromised, especially under emergency circumstances.
