Information for Families
Melancon Pharmacy has been providing nursing home service to the Lafayette, Carencro and surrounding areas for over 40 years. Our pharmacy delivers to these facilities twice a day, and we package medications into blister packs, as requested by the facility. We are also available for emergency call. A pharmacist is on call 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to respond to new or emergency orders after hours.
We are always available to meet with the patient and family members to discuss concerns or special requests regarding medication therapy and management. We encourage questions and are available to look over medication profiles. We can assist the patient in requesting a therapy change from the physician to improve the quality of care and for financial issues. We actively call prescribers and nursing staff at the facilities to change orders in the event of a non-formulary drug order (drug not on patient’s insurance), or in any other instance that we feel is necessary to optimize patient outcomes.
We can assist with Medicare D plans by entering current medication regimens into the CMS website and printing reports of plans, based on the patient’s current medication profile.
