Total Care RX employs a multidisciplinary transplant team to work closely with our clients and their healthcare team to ensure appropriate medication and dosing while in the hospital and after discharge. Our transplant pharmacy team closely monitors clients through medication therapy management to ensure compliance as well as to track potential side effects or interactions with transplant anti-rejection drugs.
Total Care RX has an entire team dedicated to meeting the pharmaceutical and unique customer-care needs of patients who have undergone transplant surgery. The pharmacist, as well as other members of the team, are specially trained in the pharmacology of post-transplant care.
Total Care serves the dialysis and hemodialysis needs of patients. We deliver the oral medications to the patient’s home or to the dialysis unit, as the patient requests.
Total Care works with each patient to reduce the chances of organ rejection by counseling the patient on proper drug dosing, potential side effects, the importance of compliance, as well as lifestyle changes that may be beneficial.
Total Care monitors the health of our patients, because we know that immunosuppressants can compromise the immune system and expose them to infections and other adverse side effects.
As part of serving the total needs of our transplant customers, Total Care makes every effort to keep you informed about what’s new in the transplant area. In this section, you will find information about new drugs and medical supplies.
You can purchase many of the items right here yourself. Or, if you have a question about any of them, please don’t hesitate to call us. We are here to help.
