Children's of Alabama Pharmacy department is committed to excellence in the provision of pharmaceutical care to the patients we serve. Pharmaceutical care consists of medication delivery, decisions about medication selection, dosages, routes and methods of administration, medication therapy monitoring, and the provision of other medication-related information and counseling to individual patients. The Pharmacy department uses robotic technology in intravenous compounding and inventory management as it strives to be a leader in patient safety. Our clinical pharmacists are members of multi-disciplinary teams on the neonatal intensive care, pediatric intensive care, cardiology, nephrology, pulmonary, infectious disease, pediatric hospital medicine, hematology/oncology, bone marrow transplant, gastrointestinal, and solid organ transplant services.
