Can You Read These Rxs?

SEPTEMBER 01, 2008

Registered Pharmacist Janell Claudy of Family Health Pharmacy in Greenville, Ohio, was only able to understand parts of this prescription. Instead of spending time trying to piece together the medications being prescribed, she called the physician's office for verification. Do you know what medications the physician ordered?



Kelli Kauffman, PharmD, of CVS/pharmacy #1654 in York, Pennsylvania, was not sure what medication was being ordered. She conferred with the patient who said it was for her "blood." Based on the information, Dr. Kauffman knew what the physician prescribed, but called the office for confirmation. Does the patient's hint help you figure out this script?
