Bring Your List of Medicine
Your safety is important to us at Health Sciences North. An important part of keeping you safe is knowing what medicine you use at home. You can help us by bringing a list of your medicine (or the medicine containers) with you whenever you come to the hospital or to one of our clinics for care.
Having this information with you helps us do something called medication reconciliation (or med rec). Medication reconciliation is when health care workers spend time with you and your caregivers to go over your medicine with you to make sure what you are taking is correct. This is an important part of patient safety.
