Pet Peeves (April 2019)
WHERE THERE’S SMOKE, THERE’S TIRES
Nothing frustrates me more than customers who smoke in the drive-through; don’t they understand that they’re sharing air with sick patients?
DRUG LIBRARY PATRONS
When patients ask us to “loan” them a few pills. Do they plan on giving them back?
Patients who go to the pharmacy counter just to buy a candy bar or another item [that] can easily be purchased up front.
GO SALE AWAY
When pharmaceutical representatives try to sell us on a new drug during a particularly busy time at the pharmacy.
Bossy patients, abandoned prescriptions, drive-through demands? We want to know! Send your pet peeves to CMollison@PharmacyTimes.com. We'll share them in print and online.
