Just another day in paradise........
Sorry I've been absent, but the first few days of the month are always too busy at work. We do more scripts in the first 3 days, than most pharmacies see in a month. 400 to 500!! And the phones are just crazy. How can you answer 5 phones, with just 2 people on?? Between the retirees that have just gotten their checks, and the state medicaid patients who's monthly allotments are in- it's all we can do to keep up. And at least 1/3 of these RX's have some problem attached( needing insurance approvals, or overrides!) And of course, everyone wants their 15 RX's NOW!! Not tommorrow, NOW! I swear, I broke down yesterday and asked this one patient ( who had 10 scripts to fill, and wanted them A.S.A.P!)," would you like them fast? Or would you like them done right??!! Now, granted, if a parent comes in with an obviously sick child, we will push that one ahead. We are all parents, and are simpathetic. But I can't work up the same sympathy for someone who is a known drug-abuser "jonesing" for their Lortab fix! Sorry, you can wait fool! You already have had enough to kill an elephant. 20 minutes is not going to kill you!
We actually had a doctor come into our pharmacy the other day, asking ( Ok, yelling actually!) why we will not fill his prescriptions. Well, everyone coming out of his office gets the same 4 drugs: Xanax,Lortab,Soma & Valium! And though they are written as a month's supply- they get the scripts every WEEK! Now, everyone that goes there can't possibly have the same problem- RIGHT??!! He's nothing but a licensed "enabler". We had to call the local police in , and have it explained to him that we could refuse any script we wanted, for whatever reason, and did not have to explain ourselfs. He apparently has been doing this "rant" in alot of the local pharmacies. You would think he'd get the hint!
Well, it IS Friday. Have a giggle on me!

WalMart customers soon will be able to sample a new discount item: WalMart's own brand of wine.

While wine connoisseurs may not be inclined to throw a bottle of WalMart brand wine into their shopping carts, there is a market for cheap wine, said Kathy Micken, professor of marketing at Roger Williams University in Bristol, R.I. She said: "The right name is important."
