ReCept’s Proactive Emergency Preparedness leads to Continuous Care Before and After Hurricane Harvey
Grapevine, Texas, August 31, 2017 – ReCept Pharmacy, LP In anticipation of the Hurricane Harvey warnings and evacuation orders that were in effect along the Texas coast, ReCept proactively activated the organization’s emergency preparedness plan that has ensured successful continuity in management of the pharmacy’s chronic care patients.
In advance of the storm, our pharmacy staff reached out to our patients to guarantee they received their medications prior to the storm. Throughout the storm, ReCept’s emergency preparedness safeguards allowed patients to have uninterrupted live communications with their pharmacists.
In order to ensure product safety and appropriate quality standards, ReCept relocated medications and supplies to an off-site temperature controlled safe zone facility to preserve the drug quality and temperature until the pharmacy could re-open.
“ReCept’s emergency preparedness plan was flawlessly executed by our team,” said Carmine DeNardo, President and CEO of ReCept Pharmacy. “Each one of our team members provided our patients with the most comprehensive care possible to safeguard what they needed during this catastrophic event.
On Monday, August 28th, the ReCept Corpus Christi Pharmacy location, at the center of the storm’s initial geographic target, was one of the first businesses to re-open in that area. In addition, one of our Houston locations reopened on Wednesday, August 30th. As more of our pharmacies re-open, ReCept is committed to continuing service to our patients impacted by Hurricane Harvey with all their medication needs.
With continued thoughts and prayers to the families and communities impacted by this natural disaster, ReCept would like to extend our heartfelt gratitude to all the emergency first responders and volunteers.
