When you travel, your health care provider may recommend that you adjust your medicine schedule to account for changes in time zones, routine, and diet. Ask your doctor or pharmacist about these changes before you depart. Carry a list of all the prescription drugs, OTC medicines, and supplements you take and the phone numbers of your doctors and pharmacists. When flying, carry your medicines with you; do not pack them in your checked luggage. Take enough medication with you in case you need to stay longer. Always keep medicines out of heat and direct sunlight both at home and when traveling.

Taking many medications can also increase the risk for side effects and other unintended problems. Researchers are studying deprescribing, an approach to safely reduce or stop medications that are potentially inappropriate or unnecessary. Read how NIA supports research on polypharmacy and deprescribing to help ensure older adults take only those medicines they need to help them live full, healthy lives.

The Duquesne University School of Pharmacy boasts over 5,200 alumni now serving as community and workplace leaders across the United States and throughout the world at community and hospital pharmacy settings, with major pharmaceutical companies, in academic and research institutions and alternative practice areas.

Duquesne University School of Pharmacy alumni give back in a variety of ways as a vital aspect of ongoing professional commitment to pharmacy. In addition, many members actively engage in campus events and activities, including serving as guest speakers or mentors for the next generation of pharmacy leaders.

The Pharmacy Alumni Association encourages all graduates to consider joining and always seeks new members. A close relationship between the Alumni Association and the administration, faculty, and students of the Duquesne University School of Pharmacy directly impacts in the success of the Duquesne University School of Pharmacy. The Pharmacy Alumni Association sponsors many social and continuing pharmacy education (CPE) activities throughout the year, including the Annual Alumni Conference, one of the largest venues for earning valuable continuing education credits, networking, and reuniting with old and making new friends.

A list of the medications you are taking, along with the dosages and timing. Please do not bring the actual medications with you. Your medications list can also include the name of your prescribing doctor and pharmacy, any drug allergies or side effects you've experienced while taking them, and if you are taking any over-the-counter medications or supplemental/herbal treatments.

Electronic Prescribing: Improving Patient SafetyNew York State law requires that providers, including Albany Medical Center and our outpatient offices, e-prescribe all medications, including controlled substances. Prescriptions are no longer handwritten or called in to your pharmacy, except in rare circumstances. Instead they are safely sent to your pharmacy electronically.

Flowers and GiftsFlowers, plants and gifts are delivered on a daily basis. For safety reasons, patients in special (critical) care units cannot accept deliveries. In these instances, the nurse will hold the delivery at the nursing station and have you decide whether you would like your family to bring the gifts/flowers home or you would prefer to have the gift/flowers displayed at the nursing station for everyone on the unit to enjoy.

PharmacyThe pharmacy is located on the first floor of the main hospital building at 43 New Scotland Ave. It is open to the public for prescriptions and a variety of over-the-counter medications and other items.

We also serve discharged patients and employees working on our main campus. For employees we offer reduced prescription co-pays (compared to commercial pharmacies) and 90-day supplies if prescriptions are filled at our pharmacy and you are enrolled in our employer-sponsored health insurance plan.

Our Specialty Pharmacy has dedicated liaisons to help patients obtain financial assistance, medication adherence programs, personalized refill reminders, on-call pharmacist support and home delivery.Albany Med provides free language assistance to patients whose primary language is not English, or who are hearing or visually impaired (TDD/TDY).

MailYou can send and receive stamped mail Monday-Friday. If you receive mail following your discharge, we will forward it to your home. Stamps are available for purchase in the Gift Shop.

MealsYour health care team prescribes dietary guidelines according to your individual medical needs. We use those guidelines to construct a daily menu from which you select your favorite breakfast, lunch and dinner meals. Kosher meals are available upon request. If you have any concerns about your diet or food quality, please do not hesitate to contact Food and Nutrition Services at 518-262-3205. To help ensure that you receive the full benefits of a carefully constructed diet, we ask that you do not bring food from home unless you receive permission from the nursing staff.

Bedside phone service is available on a rental basis in most patient rooms. Telephone activation and payment can be made at any time from your bedside telephone by dialing 2-6000. Payment for service may be charged to your home telephone or major credit card. Family and friends can request your phone number by calling our Information Desk at 518-262-3791. You may request that the Information Desk keep your number confidential.

Additional food, lodging, banking and pharmacy options are available on New Scotland Ave., within walking distance of the hospital. Please ask a staff member if you need help accessing any of these nearby services.

When your physician determines that you are ready to leave the hospital, our staff members work together to make your transition from hospital to home/rehabilitation care as smooth as possible. Our nursing team, with the assistance of our social workers, determine what (if any) services you may need upon discharge and make all necessary arrangements. This may include physical therapy, nutritional guidance, or special medical equipment.

To avoid any last minute confusion, it is best to make arrangements for your ride home the day before you are discharged. The person who is picking you up should plan on arriving at the hospital prior to 10 a.m. the day of your discharge and park in the "Visitor" parking garage located on New Scotland Avenue. Parking is complimentary on the day of arrival and discharge, so please be sure to have your friend or family member pick up a free parking voucher at the nursing station before leaving the unit.
