Peak Performer: Adrian Vasquez, Pharm.D.
midnight pharmacist, Pharmacy
Adrian was a Peak Performer recipient for the third quarter of 2022 (April-June). Below is his nomination letter.
Adrian is one of the night shift pharmacists and he is a vital part to the success of 5NT night shift. He is extremely quick to respond to medication requests and medication verifications. It’s apparent to most of us that he goes above and beyond for the pharmacy staff and nurses. One night when the pharmacy techs were short and the tube systems were down Adrian helped deliver medications and stock omnicells. Another night our omnicell was down and IT could not figure out what was wrong with it. Adrian came to the rescue and fixed it immediately.
One night we had to change antibiotics due to a positive culture, I asked Adrian about the difference between the varieties of broad spectrum antibiotics that we use on
5NT. Adrian took the time to break down multiple different antibiotics and their indications. This allowed me to better educate families on their medication they were receiving.
