When you come to Wyoming Medical Center, please use our valet service at the McMurry West Tower main entrance off Second Street. Our valet staff will have your information and direct you where to go for your procedure before parking your vehicle. See a check-in map here.
- West Tower valet hours are 5 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Friday.
- Or park in the West Parking Garage and check in at the information desk located on the second floor.
We will ask for a complete list of your medications before admission. All patients must provide a complete inventory of drugs, doses and times of the day you normally take them for both prescription and over-the-counter medications.
We use bar-coded medication administration and automated dispensing on all floors. You will be asked to provide two identifiers (name and birthday for example) many times in order to ensure proper medication is administered.
Red zones have been established around each medication administration area to prevent distractions. Please do not interrupt nurses who are in these red zone areas.
Please do not bring your own medications to the hospital. Following our medication guidelines will:
- Prevent errors. Some patients bring multiple medications to the hospital in one container, increasing the chance for errors and jeopardizing their safety.
- Keep you healthy. Many of your regular medications can negatively interact with medications you receive during your hospital stay. A pharmacist’s review will prevent this from happening.
- Save you money. Medicare, Medicaid and many insurance companies pay for medications (minus your deductible) your physician prescribes during your stay. If you use your own prescriptions, you will need to refill them sooner.
- Save you time. When you bring your medications to the hospital, a pharmacist is required to identify each one and check the prescription’s accuracy to ensure your safety.
