We fill prescriptions for residents of several nursing homes, in the special medication packaging the home requires and we deliver to these facilities daily. These prescriptions are filled at no extra cost to the patient. We fill prescriptions for residents of the following Long Term Care Facilities:
- Aase Haugen Home
- Barthel Eastern Star
- Wellington Place
- Ossian Sr. Hospice
For each, we use the packaging that the home requires and we deliver any new prescription orders daily. This includes over the counter (OTC) products that residents need or want, whether the resident is in the facility proper or lives in one of the assisted living units.
Our pharmacists are always available to the staff of these homes: we can be reached 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and will make sure to get the resident whatever medication is needed as soon as possible, whether our store is open or not.
We bill insurance or Medicare or Medicaid or the nursing home or patient for each product delivered, according to federal or state laws. Copays and balances due are billed monthly according to whatever arrangement the resident or family desires.
If you have a relative in one of these homes (or its assisted living units) and would like us to provide their medications, just let us know and let the facility staff know.
If you have any questions about the care we extend to nursing home patients or questions about billing, please give us a call and talk with our Long Term Care specialist, Nancy. She has over 20 years of experience working with the facilities in the Decorah area and is very skilled at ensuring that patients receive the best possible costs for their prescriptions while adhering to all applicable rules and regulations. Her meticulous care, her knowledge and experience make her one of Donlon Pharmacy’s most treasured employees.
