Pet Peeves (October 2018)

OCTOBER 01, 2018


TRICK OR TREAT
Patients who come to the pharmacy in costume on Halloween and ask for free pills.

FLU SHOT TO GO
When patients ask us if we can give them a flu shot through the drive-thru window so that they don’t have to get out of the car.

HIPPACRATIC OATH 
Patients who get angry at us for not sharing protected health information about other patients, even after we tell them about Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996.

CALL ME A DOCTOR
Physicians who insist that I’m not a “real doctor” after I tell them that I earned a PharmD.
 
What's bothering you? Bossy patients, abandoned prescriptions, drive-thru demands? We want to know! Send your pet peeves to rmarotta@pharmacytimes.com.
