Pet Peeves

Pharmacy Times, October 2019 Diabetes, Volume 85, Issue 10

Coupon clippers, smoke blowers, and other annoyances you encounter.

Coupon Clippers: The patient says, "I have five discount cards, which one gives me the cheapest price?"

Blowing Smoke: With cigarette smoke billowing into the drive-thru window, the patient is requesting their albuterol refill.

Dazed and Confused: When a patient appears completely baffled as to how a control prescription is multiple days early and they have no medication.

Patients Who Lack Patience: The patient syas, "I watched my doctor phone this prescription to you. Why isn't it ready?"

Bossy patients, abandoned prescriptions, drive-thru demands? We want to know! Send your pet peeves to cmollison@pharmacytimes.com. We'll share them here and in the publication.
