  •  Pharamcy Tech Didn't Know? (0+ / 0-)

    That is frightening to me.  Techs are usually tasked with answering general phone inquiries.  At the minimum, a qualified pharmacy technician should know, or have at hand, the AHFS Pharmacologic Therapeutic Classification, lising the kinds of drugs they are dispensing.  This classification separates contraceptives from abortifacients.

    The author didn't mention this, but I wonder if some of the contracting of healthcare services involves religiously affiliated entities that prohibit the dispensing of Plan B or Plan B One Step.

    I blame politicians and the Republican Party in particular for muddying the healthcare waters with their anti-woman, anti-science policial bias.

    Don't look back, something may be gaining on you. - L. "Satchel" Paige
