Helpful Tips when Requesting Medication

  • A clear medication request reduces the potential for misunderstandings in preparing your order. Please include the specific name or prescription number of each medication wanted.
  • Do not leave requests for “all my medicines”.
  • Call up to 7 days in advance for refills when possible, especially for controlled substances. This will allow time to contact your prescriber, if necessary, for refill authorization.
  • Leave your name and phone number where you can be reached in case you need to be contacted.

Please keep your contact information (phone number & address) and insurance updated with Patient Registration. This ensures that all members of the Nimiipuu Health team can help you most effectively.

What to expect After Your Provider Visit

The Pharmacy is usually your last stop after your visit. We ask that you be patient with us as we give you and your prescriptions the necessary attention they deserve. You should expect a fifteen-minute wait for each prescription written. If there are clarifications needed from your provider, it may take longer. Why so long? For each and every prescription received a review is done to determine the safety and effectiveness of the treatment prescribed. Each prescription is reviewed for the following:

  • Correct Patient
  • Legality of orders
  • Completeness of order
  • Allergies
  • Appropriateness of drug therapy for diagnosis and patient
  • Interactions with other medications
  • Contraindications
  • Dosage appropriateness

If any problems arise from this screening the pharmacy staff will consult with the provider before dispensing the medication.

Before leaving the pharmacy our goal is to provide you with the necessary information about your medication(s) so that you will know what your expected outcome should be. You should report any variation from what is expected to either the pharmacy or the medical provider.
