I am posting this information about the American Recall Center at the request of Mario Trucillo, managing editor of that organization. I hope it will be helpful to you.
Caring for a loved one as they deal with Alzheimer’s takes strength, patience, and true compassion. As those in our care get older, their prescription regimens and level of medical expertise that goes along with care often increases. It can be difficult to find the time to stay up-to-date on the latest safety updates on the complicated world of prescription drugs and medical devices, which is very important in ensuring you are giving proper care.
With The American Recall Center you can find news on potentially dangerous prescription medications and medical devices in simple terms, arming caregivers with the information they need in one easy-to-find location. Whether it’s breaking news on a blood thinner or how to identify side effects from a recent hip replacement recall you can quickly find the information you need to know precisely what to bring up with a medical professional.
Another time-saving tool for caregivers is our newly-introduced Patient Safety Alerts. With this feature, you simple check off the types of drugs taken by you or someone under your care, and whenever there is breaking safety news on a drug in that category you receive an email written in terms that are easy to understand. Features like this exemplify the goal of The American Recall Center: to make medical information easily accessible for everyone, thus saving time and energy for caregivers.
