Schervier Rehabilitation and Nursing Center is a 5-star quality rated skilled nursing facility in Riverdale, New York that provides innovative, interdisciplinary, and specialized medical care for both long-term and short-term residents. One resident of the facility received a prescription for vancomycin oral capsules to treat an infection with C.Diff, costing the facility $950 for a course of therapy. A more affordable option was needed.
The VeriScript software flagged the Vancomycin capsules and recommended a formulary interchange to vancomycin oral liquid. As a result, Schervier saved 93% on drug costs by accepting our pharmacist’s recommendation.
