Dallas Courier, Hot Shot Pharmaceutical Delivery

The hot shot pharmaceutical delivery service helps health care practitioners, pharmacies, and patients to solve their emergency and ongoing needs for pharmaceuticals. Patients who are homebound may run out of medication at odd times and need emergency assistance. They can call 972.680.8000 for a hot shot pharmaceutical delivery at any time, day or night.

All they need to do is first call in their prescription to a 24-hour pharmacy and get their doctor's authorization if required. Then, Dallas Courier goes by the pharmacy to pick up the medication to deliver it to a patient.

Some medications have a short shelf life and are perishable. These medications may need frequent and regular deliveries. An example of this type of pharmaceutical delivery need is a diabetic patient who needs to regularly take shots of insulin.

Another reason we get calls for a hot shot pharmaceutical delivery is when a hospital or clinic runs out of something unexpectedly and has an urgent need for it. An example of an item that may run out is anti-venom for snake bites. If an emergency room gets a run of patients with snake bites, they may not have enough anti-venom or the right kind of anti-venom on hand to treat the victims.

In Dallas Fort Worth, this problem may come up in the early months of summer when snakes are more active. Even though not very many people die from a snake bite, the faster they receive treatment with anti-venom the better are their chances for full recovery.

Most people are not aware that putting a tourniquet on the limb that blocks the blood flood is not a recommended medical procedure now. It is better to get to the emergency room as soon as possible. The emergency room staff will call for a hot shot STAT medical delivery if they need more anti-venom.
