Pet Peeves (June 2018)

Pharmacy Times, June 2018 Women's Health, Volume 84, Issue 6

Read about lazy coworkers, insurance miscommunications, and more pet peeves.

DOGGONE IT

When patients bring nonservice dogs into the pharmacy; not that I’m unhappy seeing a dog during the workday, but I always feel like a jerk telling patients that their furry friends aren’t allowed in the building.

FOILED AGAIN

Coworkers who poke a hole in the foil of a stock bottle instead of actually removing the foil.

COPAY MISCOMMUNICATION

When I tell patients that they owe us a small co-pay for a prescription and they insist that their doctor told them it would be free.

BLISSFUL IGNORANCE

Patients who ask my for advice and then ignore me when I tell them something they don’t want to hear.
