So if you f*ck up and order the wrong drug in and add it in to inventory and I fix it then don't cop some bull shit attitude with me because you messed up. Ever.  I will let it pass one time.  Next time I will school you very harshly and you may cry.  I am over dealing with bitch attitudes all the time.

Our PIC and only full time Pharmacist quit so that will be interesting.  In one week, hopefully we have a replacement.  I hope we get a old vetern that will not take any shit from these bitches.  I am so over it.

Pharmacy Customs

Every month we have a food day to celebrate everyones birthdays that month.  It is usually pot luck.  Sometimes we have a theme, sometimes not.  I have a really hard time with these events because I have OCD pretty bad.  I know most of my coworkers are clean.  I can tell by their personal hygine.  But their level of clean and my level of clean are different. 

I have struggled with these events since the get go.  I am usually the last to eat so I can pick at the food and eat very little if I feel it is questionable.  This is not something I can help.  This is not me being a jerky catty female.  This is me dealing with something I have struggled with since childhood.

I have been seen and treated with antidepressants for my OCD without much luck.  It just made me kinda numb to the other parts of my life so we discontinued them.  I now just deal with them.  Since my stroke, some aspects of my OCDs have improved.  Cracks in sidewalks/streets don't bother me.  Little wierd things like that have gotten better.  But I still have some major obsession issues like if I wake up in the middle of the night, I cant just go back to sleep with out reading first. I read over 250 books last year.  (This causes alot of lost sleep.)  I sometimes compulsively wash my clothing twice just so I know it is clean.  I smell it before I dry it.  I only use tide.  No sketchy cheap stuff.  Only use Bounce.  No sketchy cheap dryer sheets.  My husband is useless and only gets to was his own clothes.  He knows I will rewash my own.  If I use silverware at other peoples houses I almost always rewash it. (I dont trust them.)

I can stand my clutter in my home library.  But I cannot stand clutter at work or any where else around my home.  It suffocates me.

Anyways, back to the topic.  Sketchy food.  Who to trust.  And people make some wierd stuff too.  Then they wanna pass out their recipes like they have a gem. Guh!  The owner made some wierd cheese ball.  I sat next to her so I had to eat some but I have no clue what kind of cheese it was.  Wierd. I might be sick the next food day.

Here's what technicians shouldn't do...

Tecnicians should never recommend any OTC products to customers EVER.  NEVER EVER.  Even if we know the answers, it should not cross our lips.  I am a pretty educated and smart person BUT I do not have a RpH or PharmD after my name so I know better.  But this other tech, she will go out there and start recommening products left and right.  Cough and cold for children under 3.  Sure why not.   40 year old man with cold symptoms: sudafed...I'm like really???  You didn't even look at his profile or talk to a pharmacist about his medical problems.  She asked him if he had high blood pressure.  He said no.  But the next day he filled medicine for high blood pressure! 

This same tech also councils patients on medications.  I don't think she has even been to college let alone Pharmacy school.  Aparently she had some people in the community convinced she is a Pharmacist.  She never wears her name tag that says she is a tech!   I am so frustrated!  We have already had a meeting about her behavior.

We are an independant pharmacy owned by an non pharmacist so I doubt she will get fired for her bullsh*t.  But I get so tired of it.  The PIC is tired of it but he is a non confrontationalist who needs to grow a back bone!  Any suggestions?

WTF moment of the WEEK

I get a call yesterday from a nurse returning my call.  It goes like this.

Nurse Prompt: Calling you back on a PA request for Mrs. Needy.

Me: When did I leave you that message? (I knew it have been awhile and I was testing her...)

Nurse Prompt: *shuffles pappers*: November....

Me: Yea, I gave up hope, the patient gave up hope...I called the office ATLEAST a dozen times...what is prompting a callback now?

Nurse Prompt:  I just got the message...

Me: *thinks to myself...um ok...*

Nurse Prompt:  Will you re-send the P.A. info over?

Me:  Sure thing.  I aim to please.

The P.A. was approved within 4 hours.  How hard was that??

Almost all of our first of the year insurance snaffoos have been resolved except two LTC contracts.  Which either way, we will get paid...we will just have to send out 30 day supplies vs 31 if it doesn't get resolved.  So, we feel like we are in a pretty good place.

The McNasty Twins are in fine form this week.  What.ever.  0_o  Some days it doesn't pay to get out of bed.  I think I should get 1 taser use a year, is that asking too much?

Our after school girls are finally getting it.  Well 2 out of the 3.  The 3rd is just dumb and hopeless.  I call her box of rocks.

New Year Crazies

Back to the grind today...I know, I know...I seem a little spoiled that I am just heading back but it just happened that the days fell that way. 

But I came back to a shit storm!  Somehow the one contract that wacked out at the 1st of the year was one of the biggest and most inportant, depending on how you look at it.  It is the insurance processor for all of the state employees!  It has literally been a nightmare.  We are getting 2 stories.  The first is that our contract is no longer active and the second is that there is a glitch and they are working on it.  No one can really get their ducks in a row on this.  Not our software vendor, not Caremark, not our contract guy...it is crazy.  We have 150+ rejected claimes...about half of those we have given them some medication....ugh....

Other then that, thing have went fairly good.

Now we are expirencing Daytrana shortages, though....
