Pharmacy Department

NYU Langone Pharmacy Department is a state-of-the-art pharmacy that is located on the third floor of the Medical Center’s flagship Tisch Hospital. The Pharmacy Department consists of over 75 pharmacists, 65 technicians, and over 20 clinical and operational preceptors. It provides 24-hour pharmacy services, including dispensing of medications via Swisslog robotic technology. A USP 797-compliant HEPA-filtered clean room utilizes the DoseEdge workflow management system to ensure the accurate preparation of IV admixtures. An automated dispensing device monitoring system (Pandora) is used to accurately and safely dispense narcotic medications. When physicians enter orders through EPIC, these orders are automatically interfaced. Once the orders are verified by the pharmacist, the corresponding medications are retrieved by the Robot and packaged into bar-coded plastic envelopes. These envelopes are then delivered to units throughout the hospital via the pneumatic tube system. Nurses administer medications using bedside bar-coded technology. The use of new technologies has allowed pharmacists who work in various pharmacy satellites to expand their role with providing direct patient care.
