Pet Peeves (July 2017)

Pharmacy Times, July 2017 Digestive Health, Volume 83, Issue 7

Read about food in the pharmacy, drive-thrus, and more pet peeves.

When patients bring food with them into the pharmacy and eat it at the counter as we try to speak with them about their prescriptions.

DRIVE-THRU ENTITLEMENT

Patients who use the drive-thru and insist that we help them before those who are already in the pharmacy.

ASKING THE IMPORTANT QUESTIONS

When patients call and request to speak directly to the pharmacist, only to ask what time the pharmacy closes.

POTTY MOUTHS

Patients who get angry and start cursing up a storm when there are young children in the pharmacy.

Impatient patients, abandoned prescriptions, drive-thru demands? We want to know! Send your pet peeves to rmarotta@pharmacytimes.com.
