Pet Peeves (May 2018)

Pharmacy Times, May 2018 Skin & Eye Health, Volume 84, Issue 5

Read about circular calls, bargain hunters, and more pet peeves.

When patients feel a little too comfortable with us and show us a very private rash with little warning.

​CIRCULAR CALLS

Calls with insurance companies in which 2 representatives redirect me back and forth to each other.

BARGAIN HUNTERS

When we fill a prescription for a patient only for the patient to ask us if any of our competitors sell the medication at a lower price.

LICENSE TO FILL

Drive-thru patients who don’t have their driver’s license on them when we need it to dispense a controlled medication.

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