Avoiding potential hospital readmission and therapy gap

A patient with pneumonia and sepsis was discharged on two antibiotics and was recommended to Mosaic Pharmacy Service. Upon clinical review, Mosaic discovered that the patient only received a three-day supply of antibiotic therapy and identified this as a potential health and readmission risk.

The Mosaic pharmacist contacted the primary care provider and obtained the necessary antibiotic orders. The prescriptions were transferred to the patient’s retail pharmacy, ultimately preventing a dangerous gap in antibiotic therapy. This also avoided a potential hospital readmission, costing on average $14,400. ¹
