The primary mission of the Meadowlands Hospital Pharmacy department is to put the patient first. We do this by providing pharmaceutical care focused on patient safety and disease state management.
MHMC Pharmacy department is supported by state-of-the-art automated systems including Pyxis, Unit-Dose, Intravenous drug distribution, an automated physician order entry system, medical records, and on-line drug information resources.
Meadowlands Pharmacy Team is clinically involved in routine drug monitoring as well as adverse drug-reaction-reporting plus medication intervention to ensure optimal drug safety to our patients. The pharmacists review each order upon a physician’s entry. They diligently check for drug allergies, contraindications, and drug interactions with other medications the patient is currently receiving before they release the medication. Patient safety is our first concern. Many times, a less expensive drug is recommended by our pharmacists. Consideration for patient billing is another concern for us.
Our goals and vision for the department includes expansion of services such as Chemotherapy, the implementation of bedside bar-coding at the point-of-care which prevents medication errors, and to provide 24/7 departmental coverage.
To make it convenient for our patients and community we serve, we have leased space to a retail pharmacy. The retail pharmacy is able to fill prescriptions for all employees and their family members as well as outpatients and the general public. Most insurance plans are accepted. The pharmacy has over-the-counter items and vitamins as well as some cards and gifts. The hours of operation are Monday through Friday, from 9am until 5pm. The retail pharmacy is closed on Saturday and Sunday.
You may contact Pharmacy/Inpatient Monday through Sunday, 7am-11pm at 201-392-3130 and Pharmacy/Retail Monday through Friday 9am-5pm at 201-325-6700.
