We are a university based Peds ED, teaching facility, tertiary referral center, about 40K paitients per year.
Who on the list has a pharmacist in the ED? If so, how do they functionin the ED and how did you justify the cost/FTE to your administration? Patient safety, resuscitation/trauma involvment, etc...
Any thoughts would be helpful, as we are starting the process of trying to get a dedicated ED pharmacist.
