Children's Home Care Pharmacy
Oishei Children's Hospital benefits from having Children’s Home Care Pharmacy conveniently located at the High Street Prescription Center, located adjacent to the lobby of Buffalo General Medical Center (A Building). Children’s Home Care Pharmacy is a full-service outpatient pharmacy that serves Kaleida Health discharge patients, employees and anyone in the community. Our pharmacy has the ability to fill outpatient prescriptions as well as provide prescription drug counseling and specialty compounding with regards to children’s dosing. We can often obtain hard to find prescription medication and over-the-counter items. Although the pharmacy specializes in children, we also fill many prescriptions for the entire family, including pets! Prescriptions filled at our pharmacy are comparable in price to any outpatient pharmacy. We offer free home delivery for the convenience of our patients.
Closing the Care Gap
Transitions of care are well documented in the literature as one of the most vulnerable times for patients. Whether it’s experiencing a medication error, adverse event or complication, serious issues can arise during times of transition. Kaleida Health'sown outpatient pharmacies are working to change that through their innovative transitions of care programs, Prescriptions Plus and TransitionCare. Our outpatient pharmacies service four major medical centers and are conveniently located within each hospital. These pharmacies are breaking the mold of outpatient pharmacy to provide programs which have become an integral part of the discharge process. These programs are providing our patients with a smoother transition of care, significantly less readmissions, and overall, a more positive Kaleida Health experience.

What is Prescriptions Plus?
Kaleida Health's comprehensive discharge dispensing program. As part of the program, each hospital floor is equipped with an Engagement Fulfillment Representative (EFR), which is essentially a pharmacy liaison. These liaisons engage patients and offer the Prescriptions Plus services — reconciliation and verification of discharge medications as appropriate, affordable, and preferred for each patient, bedside delivery of medications fifteen minutes before discharge and patient education.
We not only act as outpatient pharmacies, but also include many clinical services.. This includes a dedicated discharge pharmacist and staff, medication therapy management services, discharge follow-up, and medication reconciliation services.
Patient’s medications are filtered through the discharge pharmacist who works to make interventions of many types — clinical, financial, and continuity of care. As a Kaleida Health employee, the discharge pharmacist has access to hospital providers, which is unmatched by other outpatient pharmacies. This lends itself to quicker answers, better continuity of care, and safer transitions of care. Once the medications are approved, they are filled and delivered to the patient’s bedside by the EFR.
Children’s Home Care Pharmacy provides telephonic or face-to-face, in-room, counseling to patients prior to discharge when necessary. In order to address any fragmentation of care, our pharmacies forward a communication form to the patient’s home pharmacy. This informs their home pharmacist that a mutual patient has been discharged and includes the patient’s reconciled discharge medication list; this effectively closes the care gap between the patient’s home and hospital care teams.
