Types of Patients, part cuatro-o!

Again, my own: The Gang Banger: Comes out in full gang gear. Probably is packing more firepower than the coast guard. Makes you start to reach for the guns and the panic buttons. Then when you consult with him, you realize that he’s a really nice guy and that your store has been taking care […]

Fucking DrugNazi

So i’m happily at work being my usual angry self yesterday, when in comes this fax. It has handwritten “This is the funniest blog i’ve ever seen, you must read this” with a bunch of text. I have to take a class-3 shit at the moment, so I decide to take the pages into the […]

Types of Patients, part three-o!

Yes! More! First my own: The Bait and Switcher: These patients usually call in a laundry list of maintence med prescriptions that all appear to be on time. However they sneak in their pain pills that are 2 weeks early hoping the’ll get ran through by accident with all the other medication. When you fail […]

For all those pharmacy students out there

If you’re a pharmacy student, thinking about getting into pharmacy, or a pharmacy professor, please read this (or read this to your students). This should be the new pharmacist creed. (This starts off sappy, but it gets better). Being a pharmacist, by the Angry Pharmacist: Theres a lot of things that you will experience once […]

Types of Patients, part duex

Thanks to all who have written! Here are some more customer types: From Rebeccah in a ‘college town’ The Overprotective mother (or OPM as we call them). .These are the ones that call in pretending to be the patient (who happens to be college aged and SHOULD be able to function on their own). They […]

Types of Patients (see what I deal with?)

These are the people that make pharmacist drink heavily. Enjoy! The Waiter: This person loves to sit there and ask you or the staff every 2 min if their Rx is ready yet. If their Rx is not immediately taken down from the ‘waiting’ basket area, they bitch and complain as to how long its […]

Not a Rant, but a welcome

I’d like to publically welcome Mandy of “Drugs ‘R’ Phun” (http://mandyiscool.blogspot.com/) to the links on the side of my page. She started a really really neat thing, “Bad Name of the Day”. God, she has no idea the stuff I see every day. I’ll have to write them down and just list them all in […]

The County Hospital

Now feel free to correct me if i’m wrong, but is every county hospital the most mismanaged, poorly ran, sinkhole of my tax-paying dollars on the planet? Why dont I just throw 1/3 of my paycheck into the air and let the retarded rejects of the medical profession (if you want to associate them with […]

Drug Reps, part Duex

** I got this information sorta second hand, so it might be wrong ** (But if it is wrong, who cares! Its about dumbass drug reps!) So I heard today via the pharmacy grapevine about how this Rep for a reputable blood glucose monitoring machine gave another pharmacist both barrels. You can probably guess from […]

Ambigious drugs, fortune telling, and doctors who dont know shit

How many of you have been in this position: You get an Rx for a medication; say, Effexor. Doctor has a strength; say 37.5. Doctor wrote directions; say once a day. Now if you read this literally, you would dispense Effexor (standard release) once a day. However the sig suggests the extended release (XR) that […]
