As a result, Lima Memorial’s Outpatient Pharmacy created the region’s only meds-to-beds service model. Commitments were made to ensure that the first and only stop after leaving the hospital would be the patient’s home, not another pharmacy, and patients would leave the hospital with all of their medications.
