Fauquier Health promotes the Planetree philosophy and medication safety for patients by placing pharmacists in a strategic position within the hospital to make the best use of their knowledge and expertise. Pharmacists are staffed on each inpatient nursing unit on Monday through Friday from 7 until 3, as well as in the pharmacy. They assist physicians with the management of drug therapy. Pharmacists review all medication orders for accuracy, appropriateness, and drug-drug, drug-allergy and drug-food interactions. In addition to oversight of drug distribution throughout the facility pharmacists serve as a resource for nursing, other health professions as well as patients. Our pharmacists are supported by a well-trained staff of registered pharmacy technicians, who assist the pharmacists with drug distribution.”
