Pharmacy

The Department of Pharmacy Services at New York Eye and Ear Infirmary of Mount Sinai (NYEE) is designed to meet the needs of both patients and departments. It provides prescribed medications and counseling about medications to inpatients and ambulatory care patients. It also provides drug information to medical and nursing staff and other health care professionals who are involved with prescribing or administering drugs to patients.

The Department of Pharmacy Services has two locations within the hospital. The Main Pharmacy is located on the lower level of the North Building, and it provides pharmaceutical care and medications for all of our surgical and non-surgical patients who are treated throughout the hospital. The NYEE Pharmacy provides prescribed medications and counseling about medications to inpatients and ambulatory care patients. The Pharmacy securely stores, handles, and distributes medications throughout New York Eye and Ear Infirmary. All drugs are procured, stored, and dispensed according to federal, state, and city laws and regulations. Many of the medications stocked in the Pharmacy have a Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) which also educates staff members regarding the proper handling and storage of hazardous medications.

Our highly trained pharmacists are licensed by the State of New York and are required to complete 15 hours of continuing education per year. Additional departmental in-service programs are conducted to acquaint our team with new drugs and procedures that are relevant to the practice of ophthalmology and otolaryngology. We also actively participate in Investigational Study Protocols.

The Pharmacy utilizes a vast array of informational health care resources, such as pharmaceutical and medical journals, and online medical resources to provide expanded drug information to all health care professionals and patients.

NYEE's formulary of drugs is reviewed and maintained by the Pharmacy and Therapeutics Committee.  All requests for new additions to the formulary are first reviewed by the committee for safety and efficacy. Quality and drug utilization reviews are performed to monitor the usage and effectiveness of formulary drugs.

The Department of Pharmacy Services prepares many specialty IV admixtures by compounding sterile and non-sterile pharmaceuticals that are not commercially available and are used in the treatment of diseases and medical conditions treated at New York Eye and Ear Infirmary.

Pharmacists serve as members of the following performance improvement committees within the hospital:

  • Pharmacy and Therapeutics Committee
  • Infection Control Committee
  • Quality Council
  • Standardization Committee
  • Institutional Review Board
  • Patient Safety Committee
  • Pharmacy and Nursing Committee
  • Continual Survey Readiness Committee
