Pharmacists Save Lives
This was sent to me by a follower on Twitter.
To the average person, it looks like a normal prescription, right? But to a pharmacist or pharmacy technician this sends chills down our spines.
What's so wrong?
YOU DON'T CUT FENTANYL PATCHES IN HALF.
If somehow this had made it the patient and the patient had cut a fentanyl patch in half it likely would have killed the patient or sent him/her to the hospital.
Thank your pharmacist and the techs that work with him or her. Don't pressure us to work faster to push out prescriptions. Be patient while we work hard and work smart.
We save your lives.
We keep you alive from prescription errors like this one.
If you simply don't understand what I've just said, reread it until you do.
