Pros: meeting new people, non-stop busy, friendly work environment, continuous learning of medications/prescriptions
Cons: moving on your feet all day
A typical day at St. Anthony's for me would consists of assisting pharmacists with fixed prescriptions, inventory, ordering, and re-stocking. Also, I would assure that medicine is delivered to every department in the hospital. Another daily duty I had was Inspecting all incoming prescriptions and to verify that the quantity and medicine is correct. I learned the importance of measuring the quantity of the medicine is very crucial to be in the pharmacy industry. The reason being that delivering an incorrect quantity can be a big liability for pharmacists and the organization. The management team and co-workers at St. Anthony's were a big help as part of my continuous growth process as a pharmacy technician. They allowed me to get my feet wet and gave me the ability to improve myself within all my aspects. The most difficult part of my job was ensuring all prescriptions were received on time to patients within each departments. Prioritizing was the big factor I had to implement when delivering prescriptions. The most enjoyable part of the job was being part of a team of doctors/pharmacists that would help save patient's lives.
