A work day includes shifting around the pharmacy ensuring every script received is entered into our system, necessary documentations are lawfully taken care of, accuracy is met, claims are passed through insurance adjudication, medications are properly dispensed//compounded, customers pick up appropriate medications and receive a genuine interaction that develops trust, inventory levels are on target, and that various duties are executed on time, with care and precision. The pharmacists are great and foster a great team dynamic. A good pharmacy requires a team dedicated to nailing the details and exceeding expectations. If there is friction within the group it impedes on production and quality of service. I've learned patience largely from the retail portion of this position. You get to interact with a plethora of personalities; Every one visiting a pharmacy has their own ailment or trial that requires sensitivity and understanding. It's great working with the same families month to month, feeling like you are impacting their health in a positive way, watching them grow and developing a relationship.
