Hospital to Host Medication Safety Review Program

Have you ever wondered if the prescription and over-the-counter medictions you take are interacting properly? On Thursday, January 9, 2014 Wood County Hospital is hosting a free Brown Bag Day: Medication Safety Review program from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. in the hospital meeting rooms. WCH pharmacist Todd Leopold, PharmD, will give a presentation about medication safety. Community members are invited to bring in all their medications, over-the-counter and herbal products for review by pharmacy students from the University of Findlay. The students will review how each medication is to be taken, how to store medications, screen for interactions between the mediations and supplements and answer any questions.

Attendees are invited to bring a lunch or purchase a meal ticket in the hospital cafeteria for $2. Pre-registration is encouraged. Call 419-354-8863, option 3 or online at www.woodcountyhospital.org.
