The 2004 SHPA Standards of practice for clinical pharmacy list the ten activities pharmacists undertake to provide a comprehensive clinical pharmacy service to hospital inpatients.1 The Standards also document the staffing required to deliver a clinical pharmacy service during normal business hours based on bed type. As the unit of ‘one bed’ is easily understood and identified by hospital managers, the number of beds, rather than the number of patients, has been used as a workload measure for pharmacy services in Australian hospitals.
