Laura Limburg, Pharm D, BCPS, clinical coordinator, Pharmacy
What influenced your decision to choose a career in health care?
I started out in engineering but didn’t love it, then I took biochemistry
and immunology courses which I really liked. I grew up with a close friend
whose dad was a pharmacist, and every time I was sick, my mom would show
me the bacteria or virus making me ill! So I ended up in pharmacy school
and then did a residency at The MED in Memphis, Tennessee (now known as
Regional One Health) with an emphasis on anticoagulation and infectious disease.
Why do you enjoy working at Southeast Georgia Health System?
I've been here 14 years, and we are like a family in the pharmacy.
Everyone has individual talents, and we make a great team. It’s
also exciting as we've expanded our clinical services over the years.
We have great support from our medical staff and added Antibiotic Stewardship,
well before it was required. We have Critical Care rounding and a partnership
with South Pharmacy School. Recently, we added additional processes to
improve medication safety with anticoagulants, and we are also working
to improve opioid stewardship. It’s great to work with the quality
of people we have in other departments, so the entire system functions
well for the patient.
