Patients in a hospice receive care and treatment to keep their quality of life decent. Most of these patients are experiencing terrible pain and are susceptible to a lot of infections because of weakened immune systems brought about by their conditions.
Antibiotics, such as those that we at Poly-Med Pharmacy supply, are there treat infections. In our experience as a provider of medication therapy management in California, hospice patients receive antibiotic treatment for the management of symptoms brought about by opportunistic infections.
Such infections include pneumonia, urinary tract infection, and gastrointestinal tract infections, among others. However, as a leading pharmacy in Northridge, California, we also know that hospices also use antibiotics for prophylaxis – to prevent infections that are yet to come.
Because some of these antibiotics are expensive and may cause side-effects, doctors often take into consideration a lot of different things before deciding to prescribe on for their patients. Nevertheless, we believe that we should supply only the best quality antibiotics whenever needed.
Apart from antibiotics and other medicine, we are also offering a drive-thru flu shot for patients and their families. To know more about this service or inquire about our other products, please feel free to contact us at 747-235-3535.
