The current study aimed to examine the outcomes of pharmacists’ involvement in special nursing homes. We analyzed 58 cases involving regular visits by community pharmacists. Pharmaceutical consultation following medication use accounted for 60.3% of pharmacists’ involvement with residents. The outcomes of these consultations included improvements in prescription content; the identification and prevention of adverse drug events; improvement in ADL. The findings indicated that regular visits by pharmacists to facilities for elderly people and communicate with care professionals improved pharmacotherapy outcomes.
