Senior Rx, a division of Methodist Senior Services, is a closed-door, long-term care pharmacy whose goal is to optimally and efficiently meet the specialized needs of the twelve MSS senior living and residential care campuses serving elders throughout the state of Mississippi. Senior Rx pharmacists provide pharmacy services often provided by contracted pharmacies such as completing federally-mandated monthly drug regimen reviews for each resident living at one of MSS's four skilled nursing care sites and six assisted living facilities in Mississippi; working in tandem with physicians on "therapeutic interchange" programs that benefit patients by offering lower cost- but equally effective- drug alternatives than the initial one prescribed; and providing specialized drug packaging designed to decrease medication errors in the skilled nursing environment.
Senior Rx also provides a custom medication dispensing system with multiple check systems designed to prevent adverse drug reactions or interactions. While Senior Rx's services are not available for individual, off-campus use, nursing care facilities may contract with Senior Rx for drug fulfillment services
