The time for candy coating it is over….

I’m tired of candy coating and being all “politically correct” about this issue, so I’m just going to come right out and be an asshole.

You’re wrong, i’m right because I was a Nurse.

We all get those uppity patients once in a while who think they know it all. Give a patient an inch of information thats somewhat techincal and the’ll run a mile with it. Show one www.webmd.com and they think they know as much as a pharmacist. Suggest something and you’ll get 15 printed out pages […]

This is a true story

Actual conversation between a pharmacist and a nurse. -Phone Rings RPh – “Hello, this is the pharmacy.” RN – “Yes, hello. I am calling to inquire about Mr. Xs medication.” RPh – “OK, what’s going on?” RN – “Well, the problem is this: He’s supposed to get 20 mg of this medication, but you guys […]
