PATIENTS' STORIES

We are very proud to share with you what our patients say about Meadowlands Hospital... readmore

“I had such a great experience at the Meadowlands Hospital! From ER Registration to nurses, anesthesiologist to my doctor – everyone was very professional and nice but most importantly caring! This is what makes this hospital great!"
— Emma R., Meadowlands Hospital Same Day Surgery Patient, May 2017

“MHMC Staff made me feel comfortable and at ease at all times. Nurses always made sure my bed was made and cleaned. I never knew hospital food could be so good. Great meals! Nurses were helpful – amazing staff. For my first C-section, there is no way I could have done it without my nurses. Thank you. Nurses made sure I was in no pain and kept up with me as much as possible. Everyone was friendly and polite. Staff made me feel like family and they honestly cared. At first I was very nervous because it was my first time in this hospital – after my experience I will recommend this hospital to everyone. One of the best hospitals I have ever been to – please keep up the good work!”
— Amanda R., Meadowlands Hospital HCAHPS/Postpartum Patient, February 2017

MEADOWLANDS EMERGENCY

MHMC HEALTHFEED

Pharmacy

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 include the implementation of bedside bar-coding at the point-of-care which prevents medication errors, and to provide 24/7 departmental coverage.
