At the time of rotating medical staff it was necessary for pharmacists to carry a list of updated prescriptions so that they could inform nurses and other medical staff of changes in prescriptions in the sequence of patient wards. We developed a new computer system for recording updates to prescriptions, and it is linked with existing computer systems used by all medical staff. At the time of staff rotation, a list of the latest changes in the prescriptions can be printed out making it easy for ward pharmacists to inform doctors and nurses of these changes. This facilitates good pharmaceutical care for inpatients and helps ensure that patients take the drugs prescribed to them properly. By doing this, we pharmacists have gained further respect from other medical staff and inpatients.
