BISHOPVILLE - CareSouth Carolina recently announced the launch of its new Medication Delivery Program in Bishopville, offering free at-home delivery of prescriptions to patients.
The program, which first started in Chesterfield County, aims to enhance convenience and accessibility for patients in the Bishopville area.
Patients who use the Bishopville pharmacy, regardless of whether they use CareSouth Carolina medical facilities or other healthcare providers, are eligible for the home delivery service at no extra cost. The program's primary objective is to ensure that patients receive their medications in a timely manner, regardless of their circumstances or transportation limitations.
When patients call in for prescription refills, they will be informed about the convenient delivery option. The pharmacy staff will also give patients information about the service during face-to-face interactions. Once patients express their interest in medication delivery, the necessary information will be recorded.
Whenever possible, same-day delivery will be arranged. If not, the medications will be delivered the next day.
Once the medications are prepared, the pharmacy staff will provide information and consultation over the phone, ensuring that patients are well-informed about their prescriptions. The delivery driver will then head to the patient's location, obtain their signature and deliver the medications directly to their doorstep.
Teshonna Gregg, the pharmacy tech and delivery driver at the Bishopville office, emphasized the significance of the new Medication Delivery Program.
"I think the delivery option is important for our patients because it's local, convenient and most importantly, it's free," said Gregg in a news release. "There's no greater feeling than going to a patient's house and them saying, 'Thank you so much! You don't know how much I appreciate this.'"
Jeffrey Hancock serves as the pharmacist at the Bishopville location.
