TRHC Unveils Omnicell Medication Dispensing System
Continuing To Raise The Bar For Exceptional Care
TRINITY – With the addition of Omnicell Dispensing Cabinet, Trinity Rehabilitation and Healthcare Center (TRHC) has once again advanced their healthcare programs beyond industry standards for long term care facilities.
The state-of-the-art Omnicell Dispensing Cabinet provides on-site pharmacy services allowing physician’s prescriptions to be filled much faster and more efficiently. Typically long term care facilities use outside pharmacy services that deliver medications on a daily basis, and generally not until the day following the physician’s order, which can delay the actual administration to the patient or resident.
“We pride ourselves in going above and beyond to provide our residents state-of-the art policies and practices that are advanced far beyond what long-term care facilities offer. Omnicell is just another example of that. We continue to lead the industry by providing services that are typically only found in other healthcare settings such as hospitals,” said Trinity Rehabilitation and Healthcare Center (TRHC) owner, Darcy Whatley. “We continue to raise the quality bar within the long-term care industry by implementing programs such as Fragrance Free Workplace, CureCompanion telemedcine and Omnicell which are generally only found in higher level healthcare facilities such as large hospitals,” she added.
The Omnicell Automated Dispensing Cabinet deploys the latest hardware technology and smart software to create safer, more efficient medication processes. The nurse-friendly cabinets have received the highest KLAS ranking 12 years in a row. The system provides increased medication safety and security through a stringent series of security features.
A 2018 survey reported that 98 percent of healthcare executives believe that automation will be important for helping to close gaps in patient care throughout the healthcare landscape.
The Omnicell Automated Dispensing Cabinets contain many medications commonly ordered by physician’s in long-term care, geriatric and specialized settings so they are readily available when needed as well as the residents regularly prescribed medications.
According to Omnicell, managing medications is a critical part of patient or resident care and Omnicell Dispensing Cabinets create a smarter, safer process for getting the right medication to the right patient or resident, helping to improve the overall medication experience.
Whatley concluded by saying, “We are grateful to be part of the Trinity Community and look forward to continuing to bring advanced state-of-the-art services to our residents.”
Pillar Stone Healthcare also owns and operates Baywood Crossing Healthcare Center at 5020 Space Center Blvd. Pasadena, Texas.
Trinity Rehabilitation and Healthcare Center (TRHC) nurses Fran Mendez Ward, LVN and Vanessa Anderson, LVN demonstrate how the Omnicell Dispensing Cabinet dispenses the proper medication to the right resident in a timely, secure and efficient manner.
