Sometimes I think we must be in the high ten most frequent customers at the pharmacy.
Today we had another new RX for Lee after seeing our doctor. We get our medicine at the clinic where we see the physician. Through some error it was sent to a grocery pharmacy where we had ONE prescription filled over Labor Day week-end. When we went to pick up the antibiotic which we had never had before, the clerk told us it couldn't be refilled until the 18th. Say what? We had never purchased this particular drug before.
Through some convoluted error, it had been sent to the wrong place and perhaps when they saw the name, they thought it was a refill for the item we got on the first of September.
I know mistakes can be made. I sure make a lot of them. But I don't work in a pharmacy!!!
It was all straightened out but not before a lot of worrying and gnashing of teeth by the patient. (None of that was displayed before the employee, thank goodness.)
It reminded me of the time when our older son was stationed in KY. The three year old granddaughter was ill. We went to the pharmacy to pick up the RX and they gave us a bottle with huge capsules. It should have been a liquid. Luckily we looked at it before we left the parking lot and got the correct dose.
Check and re-check!
