The Pharmacist Is A Whore

When I got into this business a gazillion years ago, we used to do studies with pharmacists rather regularly. BUT. I haven’t really even thought about members of the pharmacy profession in years. Why?

Take a look into this book and see what has happened to this profession. Press the “Look Inside” key and read a few pages. Most of this we already know. Pharmacists are now corporate employees, and “The Man” is placing increasing demands on them for performance and compliance. According to this author, this pressure is not only impacting the pharmacists, but also the safety of the patients, now “customers,” receiving prescriptions filled by these beleaguered professionals.

Bottom LineJust ponder all of this for a moment. Then store it in your head with the doctors and other health care providers for whom changes in the U.S. medical system have not necessarily been good news!
