Medication Refill, Emergency Department
We have refilled your medication today as a courtesy to you. It is best for your medical care, however, to take care of getting refills done through your primary caregiver's office. They have your records and can do a better job of follow-up than we can in the emergency department.
On maintenance medications, we often only prescribe enough medications to get you by until you are able to see your regular caregiver. This is a more expensive way to refill medications.
In the future, please plan for refills so that you will not have to use the emergency department for this.
Thank you for your help. Your help allows us to better take care of the daily emergencies that enter our department.
