Pharmacy

The pharmacy at Colquitt Regional Medical Center prepares and distributes medications prescribed by each patient’s physician while the patient is hospitalized. A pharmacist is on duty or on-call at all times. A computerized pharmacy management system with unit dose distribution ensures that the right medication is delivered to patients at the times prescribed by their physician. Commonly used medications are kept in secure Pyxis medication stations located in each patient care area for convenience. In addition to unit dose medications, the pharmacy prepares IV admixture solutions for intravenous infusion, including total parental nutrition (TPN) and cancer chemotherapy. Home IV admixture therapy is provided by the pharmacy through Colquitt Regional Medical Center’s Home Health Services. Pharmacists are also available to answer patients’ questions about a particular drug or drug therapy during normal business hours.
