ensures the supply, storage and distribution of medicines and sterile medical devices for all the IHFB’s healthcare services on both of its sites.
ensures the preparation of personalised prescriptions when the medicines involved are not on the market.
helps ensure the security and proper use of medicines.
While medicines and sterilised medical devices are mainly distributed according to programmes worked out in conjunction with the various services, medicines with a special status are only prescribed on a nominative basis (such as “reserve” medicines, costly drugs or those with just a temporary permit for use, those used in clinical trials, injectable anti-cancer medicines or narcotics).
The Pharmacy has a centralised unit for reconstitution of anti-cancer medicines (rigid isolator) and prepares chemotherapies for inpatients. The circuit (prescription, preparation and administration) is entirely computerised.
Distribution of medicines to outpatients:
Some medicines can only be distributed by hospital pharmacies. Their delivery to patients who are not hospitalised but who are treated at the day hospital takes place Monday to Friday from 09h00 to 12h00 and from 14h00 to 17h00.
- Don’t forget to bring your prescription and your social security “attestation” or your Carte Vitale.
- Only one month’s supply of medicines can be distributed at a time. This is renewable depending on the prescription.
- In case of travel abroad for more than one month, please contact your social security centre for an authorisation to receive the necessary extra supply.
The Pharmacy is located on the first floor at the 4 rue Kléber site.
Hygiene and Vigilance
The Pharmacy works closely with the Committee to Combat Nosocomial Infections (CLIN). The head pharmacist is in charge of “Pharmacovigilance,” the noting and evaluation of secondary effects (particularly those that are undesirable) resulting from the use of medicines.
Documentation et information
The Pharmacy conducts a campaign of information with the clinical departments on the proper use of medicines and medical devices.
This campaign, aimed at health professionals, is carried out in close cooperation with doctors and healthcare personnel in the hospital, in particular through the following commissions:
- la COMEDIMS: the Commission of Medicines and Sterile Medical Devices
- le CLUD the Committee to Combat Pain
- le CLIN: the Committee to combat nosocomial infections.
Medicines and sterile medical devices used in the hospital are listed in the Therapeutic Index.
The Sterilisation service uses autoclaves to sterilise the medical-surgical equipment used in the hospital.
