Pet Peeves (May 2017)

MAY 25, 2017

FAIR-WEATHER PHARMACY PATIENTS
When patients constantly remind me of what a beautiful day it is while I’m inside the pharmacy for a 12-hour shift.

​CIRCULAR CALLS
Calls with insurance companies in which 2 representatives redirect me back and forth to each other.

NEVER MIND
When we rush to fill a large order of prescriptions for a patient who wishes to wait, only for the patient to tell us they’ll go somewhere else after we tell them the price.

THE USUAL EXCUSES​
Patients who ask me to refill a controlled medication because their pills were supposedly stolen, but then refuse to show me a police report. Nothing suspicious there!
