N: 1. dispensary (n): “place for weighing out medicines,” 1690s, from Medieval Latin dispensarius “one who dispenses,” from Latin dispensare “disburse, administer, distribute (by weight)” (see dispense).
2. Comparison of level of satisfaction of users of home care: integrated model vs. dispensaries model. The patients of the dispensaries model showed more satisfaction than the users receiving care from the integrated model. There was a greater healthcare continuity for those patients from the dispensaries model, and a lower percentage of hospitalizations during the last year.
3. Cultural Interrelation: We can mention the movie City of Joy (1992) by Roland Joffé.
