A survey of pharmacokinetic service (PKS) provision and characteristics of the service was conducted in Georgia's 223 hospitals. The survey's questionnaire, returned by 133 (59.6%) institutions, showed that 23.3% currently had a PKS and that 47% of those without a PKS had plans to establish one in the future. Services were primarily provided by pharmacists (93%) who were certified to provide the consultations in only 40% of the institutions and the PKS was run through either the pharmacy (93%) or pathology laboratory. All services used calculators and/or computers with a variety of software programs to assist in pharmacokinetic evaluations. Patients were charged for the service in 38% of the institutions.
