Backup Pharmacy Services
Backup pharmacy services are utilized in both standard and after-hours situations when medications are needed before institutional pharmacies can deliver required medications to the facility. Or, for many jails across the country, backup pharmacy services are utilized for all medication needs.
Emergency and After-Hours Care
Backup Pharmacy Scenarios
Backup pharmacy scenarios can occur when inmates enter a facility or when medical conditions dictate that the patient needs medications right away. For instance, emergency or after-hours services may be required when inmates need:
- A bronchodilator to help with trouble breathing
- Insulin to bring blood sugar levels down
- Antibiotics to address an infection
- Other emergency medication needs
In these scenarios, when medications are needed STAT, the InMedRx pharmacy program is utilized to support patient care needs.
