I.S.M.P. Wants in on the Rite-Aid fiasco

March 29th, 2011 by Jim Plagakis

Your Prescription Will get the same careful attention that we give every prescription. We will also counsel you appropriately. 15 minutes? No way. Do you think this is Rite-Aid? I'm taking my lunch now. Come back in an hour.

One of our regulars received this from the I.S.M.P. Please contact them with your stories. Especially Rite-Aid pharmacists.

Thank you for expressing your concern in regards to this dangerous practice. We have received several complaints from individuals who share your frustration and will be addressing this issue in an upcoming publication. Would it be possible to give me a call on the number below in order to further discuss this matter with you. I am looking for example of errors that reached the patient or were caught by the pharmacist because of this practice. All information submitted to ISMP is confidential.
