Transplant Care Services

Total Care offers a complete range of specialty services to patients who have undergone transplant surgery and to the caregivers who serve them

Here is an outline of the steps involved in your care

1

While the patient is in the hospital, the pharmacy receives an initial phone call from the hospital with details of personal information and medications.

Total Care coordinates insurance benefits with hospital. In the process, Total Care explains that our Transplant Team will monitor new incoming orders and inform the patient of medication changes.

Total Care delivers the initial package of medications to the hospital.

The hospital Transplant unit reviews the medications with the doctor and the patient.

Once the patient is discharged, Total Care will follow up a few days later to see how the patient is doing and explain what we will be providing. Total Care will also review any bills and payment arrangements with the patient.

When patients need refills, Total Care will obtain the new prescriptions from the hospital pharmacy coordinator or from the doctor’s office.
