Prescription Delivery . . . At Your Bedside
Filling a prescription after a hospital stay can be a logistical challenge. Geneva General Hospital is now partnering with North Street Pharmacy to offer a convenient “Bedside Pharmacy Service” to make the process easier. North Street Pharmacy, located in the Medical Office Building, right on the Geneva General campus, can fill and deliver a prescription to patients right in his or her room before being discharged.

Karen Fitzpatrick, Director of Care Management at Finger Lakes Health, says, “The Care Management team is committed to helping patients reach their healthcare goals and this service will save time and help smooth the transition from hospital to home.”

North Street Pharmacy Owner and Registered Pharmacist Steve Gray, who has more than 30 years of pharmacy experience, says the process is simple and convenient.

“A patient can simply request the service by letting your physician, nurse, or care manager know you would like to use the Bedside Pharmacy Service,” he said. “Your prescription will be sent electronically to North Street Pharmacy where our team will fill your prescription, then deliver it to your bedside.”

Gray and his staff will work with a patient’s physician, nurse, care manger and insurance company to make sure he or she has the medications needed to continue one’s recovery at home.

He says North Street Pharmacy accepts most prescription insurance plans. His team will gladly call a pharmacy that has your information on file if necessary. Once your prescription is filled, it will be delivered to your hospital room.

If a patient has questions about his or her medications, Gray is available by phone to consult. There is no additional cost for the delivery to a patient’s room, and North Street Pharmacy will directly bill the prescription cost to the patient’s insurance provider. The patient is responsible for any prescription co-payment required by your insurance carrier; co-payments are collected at the time of prescription delivery. Cash, check, credit card, and flexible spending account cards are accepted.

The Bedside Pharmacy Service is available Monday through Friday, from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.
