Somebody Missed the Memo

Our clinic system is bracing for the big flu outbreak. We are beseiged with memos and e-mails with flu news. We've had tons of people coming in for flu shots. Employee absenteeism has not materialized yet, though. Some areas seem to be heavily into the Tamiflu dispensing and others are not --- when they do get a rush of scripts they are usually for an entire household at a time.

I've been trying to keep my hands washed and foamed and Purell-ed. A lot of the customers use our hand sanitizer, and everyone seems acutely aware of the hygeine issues --- well, almost.

This guy brings a bottle of Tylenol to the register, tells me it's for his wife who is at home with "confirmed" H1N1. He then proceeds to let loose with a rip-roarin' sneeze, and not into his sleeve either. I ducked. I sure hope I was fast enough. Thanks a whole HELL of a lot.

Hi ya, I can' find your email address, so I'm leaving you a comment.

I just put together a list of the best iphone/itouch apps for Pharmacists, could you share my post with your readers? If there's a app you use often in the field that isn't on my list, let me know in the comments (or email me) and I can add it. Did you know apps can be written off on taxes?:) Might even be able to write off a iphone too if you can show that you only use it for work (for the apps!).

Here's the post:

Thanks much,
