The Visiting Nurse Assn. of Los Angeles will launch a Pharmacology Assistance Program for its aging home health patients with a $25,000 grant from the Weingart Foundation of Los Angeles.
A full-time pharmacist will consult on individual cases and instruct the association's 620 staff members about medications. The program is a first for a home health agency in the area, according to Sharon Grigsby, Visiting Nurse Assn. president.
