Alabama Skilled Nursing Facilities Offered New Medication Management Program

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (August 14, 2017) —Turenne PharMedCo is providing their customers with advanced equipment to help streamline and secure management of emergency/first dose medications. Turenne, a Montgomery-based pharmacy for long-term care facilities, launched their ReadyMeds STAT Pack program powered by Cubex®, a closed loop automated dispensing solution.

Combined with cloud-based technology, STAT Pack expands emergency/first dose medication availability and helps facilities safely manage medication inventory and dispensing, while increasing security and tracking usage. This advanced system reduces errors, deters diversion, saves time, and lowers costs for the facilities and their residents.

“By offering new and more streamlined technology solutions we are helping our customers strengthen nursing practices and better serve their residents,” said Wes Averett, vice president of pharmacy services for Turenne.

Earlier this year, Turenne PharMedCo became one of the first pharmacies in the state to be approved by the Alabama Board of Pharmacy to provide automated dispensing technology. The more efficient system uses single dose packaging, automatically reorders needed medications and has notifications for expired drugs and discrepancies.

“When a resident is in need, timing is crucial for getting them their medications,” Averett said. “Having the ReadyMeds STAT Pack program in place is a significant advantage for safety, and efficiently speeding up the process so facilities can focus on providing care rather than waiting on medications.”
