Interesting story from the US

As you know I follow a couple of pharmacy related blogs mostly from the USA. One which I haven’t listed to date (soon to be corrected ) is Jim Plagakis. Over the weekend he posted a report of what caused a PIC (Pharmacist in Charge) to walk out and close the pharmacy that they were working in. He followed it up with the pharmacist’s own story.

While the conditions that allowed this to occur do not exist yet in Ireland to me it gives a good example of what can happen when the pharmacy chains are dominant. It might be a good idea for the employee committee of the IPU to prepare an S.O.P. for how they might deal with this type of situation and one for employee pharmacists on how they should react.

Maybe for a bit of fun we could ask the PSI for their advice should such a scenario arise.
