Consulting Services

Patient Education: When taking prescription drugs, we believe that our patients should be educated on the possible side effects, and when to take the medication.

Educational leaflets
Our computers have the capability to print a Patient Education Leaflet on each and every medication that you or your clients take.

The information found on these leaflets include:

Nursing homes, adult care homes, and other care facilities
It is now required by facility inspectors that these Educational leaflets be present in the home.


Giving back to the community

In the spirit of our company becoming more involved in addressing the challenges many in our community face, Bates' staff members join their co-workers, members of the management team, and family members as they volunteer preparing and packaging food items at the Northwest Harvest warehouse, in addition to volunteering at other fundraising events that benefits Northwest Harvest.
