Pet Peeves (March 2016)

Pharmacy Times, March 2016 Central Nervous System, Volume 82, Issue 3

Read about bloody prescriptions, impatient patients, and other pet peeves.

A patient handed me a prescription with blood all over it. Gross!

Time for a New Bottle. A patient brought in his old, sticky bottle of Phenergan with codeine and wanted the refill in the same bottle.

“Fill Everything.” A patient wanted to “fill everything,” but when we went through her prescription list, she actually only wanted to fill half of it.

Cluelessness. Patient: “Why will it take 30 minutes? All you have to do is throw some pills in a bottle. It’s not rocket science.”
