Urgent Care or Urgent Careless?
We have an Urgent Care in the same building at Goofmart Grocery. We know their scripts because they are always printed on the same green paper. We also know who the prescriber is based on whether there are two scripts on the paper or three.
If there are two, it is Prescriber 1. Prescriber 1 gives everyone Augment 875 quantity 20 BID plus Prednisone 20mg quantity 5, 1 QAM.
If it has three scripts, it is Prescriber 2. Prescriber 2 gives everyone Amoxicillin 500mg quantity 30 TID, Flonase, and Phenergan with Codeine syrup.
It's amazing how in this neighborhood, everyone that goes to the Urgent Care all have the same condition when they see Prescriber 1, whereas the others that see Prescriber 2 on a different day all have a different condition requiring the other set of exact medications. What an amazing coincidence... or perhaps a little scary? Is it Urgent Care, Urgent Careless, or Urgent Scare?
