The inpatient setting of health system pharmacy is unique in a number of ways. The patients treated by a health system pharmacist typically have more complicated conditions than those in an ambulatory setting and take multiple medications. A staff pharmacist may have exposure to oncology, intravenous (IV) medication therapy, neonatal care, nutrition, pain therapy, geriatrics, and much more. Staff pharmacists face a varied set of responsibilities including dispensing medication, making purchasing decisions, monitoring drug therapy, preparing IV medication, and overseeing drug administration.
