What’s New at Chinook Village
New and Notable
Chinook Village is pleased to present their new partnership with Sandstone Pharmacies Crescent Heights!
Effective March 1, 2018, Chinook Village implemented an important new agreement with Sandstone Pharmacies, Crescent Heights. Briefly stated, the benefits of working with a single pharmacy help reduce medication errors and hospital admissions.
Sandstone provides professional support and hands-on care across southern Alberta. They are accessible 24/7 and offer free delivery of prescription medication. Sandstone also conducts a comprehensive annual medication review with individual residents and assesses residents prior to the start of the influenza season each year to ensure residents have an up-to-date antiviral prescription on file in the event of breakout.
This is the safest and best practice for standardizing dispensing and distribution of medications by Health Care Aides as recommended by Health Quality Council of Alberta and the Continuing Care Health Services Standards.
If you have questions concerning this program, please call 403‑526‑6951 and ask to speak to the Managing Director.
