Pet Peeves (March 2018)

MARCH 31, 2018
MAKING CENTS OF IT
When patients pay for an inexpensive prescription with spare change and take several minutes to gather the coins they need.

PREMATURE PROMISES
Doctors call in a prescription and tell their patients that “it will be ready when you get there.” Sure enough, these patients then come in to the pharmacy expecting a prescription that we haven’t had a chance to fill yet!

ALL GROWN UP
When parents get angry at us for refusing to disclose protected health information about their adult children.

HEY FEVER
Patients who try to get my attention by addressing me as, “Hey you!”
 
Bossy patients, abandoned prescriptions, drive-thru demands? We want to know! Send your pet peeves to PetPeeves@ pharmacytimes.com. We’ll share them here and online.
