BLUFFTON, Sc. (WSAV) – A Bluffton woman is trying to help doctors save lives by placing pictures on pill bottles to help patients understand how to take their medications, and so far, it’s working.
“If they have a heart medicine such as blood pressure, I usually put a little heart on there just to make sure that they know that that is for their blood pressure…some people may skip some medicines, but that’s really one that we don’t want them to skip,” said Janice Holloway, a nurse practitioner in the Lowcountry.
Did you know almost half of all patients do not take their medications as prescribed, and more than 70 percent of physicians may not know if their patients actually understand how to take them once they leave the office?
That’s according to the U.S. National Library of Medicine and the Lowcountry is no exception.
