Nothing Really Matters To Me

It's too late, my time has come. Nothing really matters to me about pharmacy anymore.

But, if there's anything I can share with new pharmacists just beginning their careers, it's DO NOT let your employer pressure you into working faster than you think is safely necessary.

Trust me on this. No matter which way the wind blows, you won't be able to live with yourself if you make a mistake and seriously hurt one of your patients.

  1. I thought I was through reporting on what I see in pharmacy and healthcare, but sometimes things are just too outrageous for me to ignore. Just as I thought I was out, they pulled me back in.

  2. I can handle any kind of prescription volume my employer throws at me. It's only you old pharmacists who can't handle it.

  3. Good one! You must be a new pharmacist. Trust me, soon enough you'll be doing the pharmacy fandango, Scaramouche, and you'll be changing your tune.

    If I'm still around by then, come back in a few years and tell me if you feel the same way about your employer pushing "your" envelope, and "your" liability, just in order to boost the bottom line.
