Nurses With Heart – Home Health Hint of the Week: Medication Refills

Medication Refills

Requesting Refills

Nurses With Heart is excited to add another home health hint to our video blog. Every week we will be posting a short video related to staying safe and healthy at home. This week we talk about the importance of staying on top of your medication refills – check it out!

Home health nurses often assist with filling medication boxes. This requires the nurse to keep a close eye on the number of pills left after each visit. The nurse’s goal is to ensure that the individual does not run out of medication prior to refilling. The nurse also teaches this habit to the individual and their families, as last-minute refills can cause unnecessary complications. Check out this week’s blog for why we want to stay on top of when refills are due.

Thanks for watching!
