Pharmacy is the science and technique of preparing and dispensing drugs. It plays a vital role to ensure the safe and effective use of drugs. At GIH, the department has a team of 21 Pharmacists determined to go an extra mile to make the use of drugs for patients safer. “Good Pharmacy Practice” guidelines and legal requirements are strictly followed at zero tolerance in all pharmacy operations. Our Pharmacy infra-structure is well-designed to maintain the quality of sensitive items such as vaccines and life-saving drugs.
With world class infra structure, the humidity, temperature and all other parameters are kept in standard at the pharmacy and the store so that the quality of sensitive drugs like vaccines, life-saving drugs and chemotherapeutic drugs are very well maintained. With the computerized record keeping and use of patient database, the appropriate drugs reach the admitted patients with almost zero chances of medicinal errors.
The pharmacy at GIH is also the cornerstone of our Antibiotic Stewardship Program (ASP) which for the first time in the country has been implemented at our hospital. ASP is a check mechanism which ensures that the antibiotics are used appropriately in the patients so that the drug resistance and hospital infections can be better controlled.
