I had to share this experience with you. I used to be a Pharmacy Technician. I am not the brightest light bulb in the world but I am at least a 60 watt bulb.So yesterday I went to the pharmacy and I will not name the business. When I arrived home and was looking at the medications I received, I noticed one was not the same amount of pills.
Since all of them were supposed to be for three months, I felt like there was an innocent error so I called the doctor. They assured it was and would call a new prescription in. By today I hadn’t heard back from the doctor nor the pharmacy so I once again called the doctor.
” Yes, we called it in yesterday. Sorry that happened. If there are any problems, let us know.”
I called the pharmacy to see if they had received the script for two months. This is the moment I wondered who was actually on the other end of the line. Let me explain that the medication instructions were, po bid pc;
take one pill by mouth twice a day after meals, usually after breakfast and after dinner. So for this script I would require 2×30=60 pills for one month supply.
I am talking to the pharmacy technician and she says they did not call a script in for two months; only one. I asked, ” How many pills were given and did you fill?” She states,”120.”
I didn’t say a word, but I was thinking oh brother.
I said thank-you and told her I would be out tomorrow. I don’t know what she was thinking but I am glad I am at least a 60 watt bulb. Other wise I would have been back on the phone with the doctor raising cane about the mixed up prescription again.
It is and that is so sloppy, things need to change
