    Few people realize their bill isn't for the pill-- it's for the person who negotiates contracts with the pill manufacturer, the people  who establish what the facility's formulary should be, the person who knows when to order more pills, the people who unload the pills off delivery vehicles, the people who get the pills to the appropriate places within the building so they'll be available to administer to the right person at the right time (without being accessible to the wrong people at the wrong times), the unit clerks who transfer physician orders to in-house pharmacies, the nurses who sign off on those orders and safely administer the right drug to the right person at the right time.

    You want we each should bill you, folks, or do you want your itemized charges to contribute to a decent living wage for the people behind your care?
