AccessaMed Available at Fruth Pharmacy

Point Pleasant, WV (December 29, 2014) –  Fruth Pharmacy, Inc. is pleased to announce that the Oakwood Road location will be celebrating serving the Charleston area for 25 years on January 7th, 2015.

Oakwood Road opened up as the 14thlocation during Fruth Pharmacy’s expansion period in 1990.  Fruth Pharmacy now has 27 locations in Ohio and West Virginia.

As a way to say “Thank You” to the Charleston community for 25 great years, Fruth Pharmacy will be holding a special two week event at the Oakwood Road location.

On the first day of the birthday celebration, customers arriving will be treated to FREE goody bags (while supplies last), balloons for the kids, birthday cake, and more.   There will be prizes in-store to register for all week long – and Electric 102 will join the celebration at 10:00 a.m. with a live radio remote.  Additional prizes will be given away on14_PreparesforBirthdayair!

Amongst this celebration, the Oakwood Road location is also welcoming new technology for their prescription labels.  Currently, this technology is only being featured in three of Fruth Pharmacy’s locations.  This technology, by Accessamed, will make prescription labels easier to follow for the vision impaired.

Accessamed has developed a digital audio label that will speak to the patient.  The label permanently adheres to the prescription bottle or package. A patient simply pushes a red button on the new electronic label and the instructions for taking the medicine will be provided to the patient in a clear and robust voice.  The digital audio label does not require expensive or complicated reading systems for users. The printed label will also continue to be on the prescription bottle.

“We are excited to collaborate with Fruth Pharmacy during this trial for its visually impaired customers,” said Carly Langdon, Executive Vice President of AccessaMed™. “For the blind, low vision and senior communities, taking prescription medication can often be an unnerving and unsafe situation. We find it commendable that Fruth recognizes this and is proactively finding the right solution for its customers.”
