In my role as a Community Health Worker I am able to meet with patients in their homes. I was meeting with a patient who had been referred to our program because of concerns that she was not taking a needed medication correctly. The patient had told the doctor she was taking the medication, the pharmacy assured the doctor she had picked up her medication but her labs were not getting any better. Upon spending some time with the patient, she revealed that she had not been taking the pills because she could not open the bottle due to her arthritis. She had been too embarrassed to tell her doctor. I shared with her how many medicine bottle caps are reversible allowing for easy opening, and I helped her set up a pill box. Since then the patient’s labs have made steady progress towards normal and she is happier and healthier!
