RIGHTS of the PATIENT

While browsing Mr Prasad R Tirunagaru 's FB home page I came across a naive question WHAT IS DISPENSING...Etc?

I replied with 2-3 editing exercise and remembered my quote I had mentioned in my article (EARLY 1980) to some journal and used it to conclude my comment as under:

Dispensing medicine is not just a MECHANICAL TRANSFER of materials from one person to the other.

It is the transfer

of information

with the material
to
ensure that the consumer

adopts good technique in handling and storage

TO

SAFEGUARD THE POTENCY

and

uses the medicine

in

the most appropriate way

so that

he is least harmed due to the side effects

and at the same time

derives optimized medication benefit

that results in considerably

lowered morbidity..

When it comes to RIGHT.

Dispensing is the delivering

of

the RIGHT medicine

by

the RIGHT professional

from RIGHT source

to

the RIGHT person

with

the RIGHT information

at

the RIGHT time

as all these RIGHTS

are

THE BIRTH RIGHT OF THE PATIENT.
