Abstract or Summary
  • A comparison of alternative pharmacy fee systems in a community hospital was studied. A retrospective analysis of FY 80 financial reports for an 83 bed community hospital was used. This data base was used to determine the economic impact of various pharmacy charging systems in a typical community hospital and to ascertain if any relationship exists between charges and work standards at the study hospital. Pharmacy revenue under the traditional and flat per diem fee system generated considerable revenue, but the revenue did not reflect a relationship to the work standards used in the study hospital. Pharmacy in-patient service units (primarily products) were underpriced while I.V. piggyback service units were overpriced in relationship to suggested revenue by work standards. This analysis reaffirms the criticism that pharmacy fees do not reflect work standards and are in need of change. This study suggests that some simple applications of specific work standards or those in the current pharmacy literature can aid the pharmacy director in justification of pharmacy fees.
