Services

Pharmacy Services is located at the ground floor next to Diagnostic Imaging and A&E Services.




The pharmacy is operating 24 hours a day. Operation for outpatient pharmacy begins at 8.30am until all prescriptions have been cleared for the day. Inpatient pharmacy shares the same pharmacy with the outpatient pharmacy where medications are prepared and dispensed internally. From 9.00pm - 7:00am, outpatient and discharge prescriptions will be dispensed from outpatient pharmacy.




Valid prescriptions; complete with patient's name, MRN or I/C, date and authorized in signature & name/stamp by KPJ Seremban's Consultants or Medical Officers will be honoured. Patients with outside prescriptions (taken outside KPJ Seremban) shall consult with our doctors at A&E Services to have the prescription rewritten on internal prescription slip and will be given medications according to the prescription. All outside prescriptions will be honored in the exception of psychotropic drugs; in which further consultation with the Consultants or Medical Officers is required for valid prescription. It is our utmost concern for medication safety that injections (except subcutaneous injection) are dispensed only for internal administration by our doctors or nurses.
