Long Term Care Services

The delivery of pharmacy services in the Long Term Care setting demands accuracy; efficiency in cost, time, and distribution, as well as a solid understanding of the range and goals of the care provided to residents. This is the foundation on which Tropicana Pharmacy has established its professional comprehensive pharmacy.

 

Tropicana uses automation technology which prepackages each patients medications in easy to use and understand packets. Most LTC/ALF/ILF patientís are managing chronic illnesses and taking multiple medications a day. Our packaging organizes all of a patient's medications by date and time of dose, so it is easy to see all of the medications a patient is taking and when it is time for the next dose. They come in calendar cards or rolls with tear-off packages that are arthritic-approved for easy opening.

 

Compliance packaging can:
  • Help reduce hospital readmissions with better medication management.

  • Improve medication adherence and patient outcomes.

  • Extend independence for patients managing chronic conditions at home

  • Ease the burden on caregivers to manage medications and ensure they are taken at the right time
