Challenges CVS Pharmacists Face on the Job

Pharmacy safety is a concern and a challenge for your local CVS pharmacy and at all other pharmacies nationwide. There are some pharmacists and pharmacy technicians who operate with patient safety in mind, double and triple checking the prescriptions they dispense. However, there are others who may be distracted, bored on the job, or negligent and not focused on safety, possibly making a small mistake.

The tiniest mistake or inaccuracy in the dispensing of medication can have serious consequences. When pharmacists are not focused, it’s no wonder why medication mistakes occur. They happen due to all the obstacles pharmacists face on a daily basis, including logistical concerns such as:

  • Organization of prescriptions
  • Medication verification of quantity and type of drug
  • Sorting methods
  • Container choice
  • Filling methods
  • Sealing and labeling methods
  • Labeling correctness
  • Accuracy
  • Efficiency
  • Overall cost

In order to overcome these logistical obstacles and reduce pharmacy error, pharmacies need to have better processes in place, train their pharmacy technicians better, capitalize on cutting-edge technology, and require pharmacists to spend time with each patient reviewing their prescription. These changes have the potential to reduce the frequency of prescription errors.

Pharmacists and their staff need to do a better job making patient safety their number one priority. If you or your family member suffered because of  negligent CVS pharmacists, call Kennedy Hodges, L.L.P. at 888-526-7616 for a free consultation and a FREE copy of our report, How to Make Pharmacies Pay for Injuries Caused by Medication Errors.
