Can a patient use their own medications in the hospital?

Of course, patient can use his own medications in any hospital but it is also our need because hospitals of all sizes face challenges in managing patients' personal medications. Larger institutions and government hospitals generally maintain larger inventories of medications and have closed formularies. So, it is very necessary for a patient to bring his or her own medications into the hospital. Some patients also may bring their medications from home to the hospital in hopes of saving money. Before use or administration of a medication brought into the hospital by a patient, his or her family, the hospital identifies the medication and visually evaluates the medication's integrity. The pharmacist of such hospitals checks or reviews the prescription or medication container label, visually checks the container contents and compares the distinguishing features of the medication to a manufacturer's or reference description of the product. After this process, you can use your own medication in any hospital.
