UNSUPERVISED CHILDREN.

When a patient lets his kids run around the pharmacy unsupervised.

SORRY I ASKED.

Pharmacy Technician: “Any questions for the pharmacist?” Customer: “No. I can read.”

UNREALISTIC EXPECTATIONS.

Cut your tech hours and be sure to give more vaccinations! Also, you still have to run the drive-thru. What do you mean you don’t have time to do medication therapy management? You said yourself you wanted to expand your clinical role!

UNFAIR COMPENSATION.

I can’t understand why companies have contracts with insurance companies that don’t compensate fairly. I don’t need busy work.

What’s bothering you? Bossy patients, abandoned prescriptions, drive-thrus? Pharmacy Times wants to know. Send your pet peeves to PetPeeves@pharmacytimes.com. We’ll add them to our ongoing published list. Share your Pet Peeves with Pharmacy Times today!
