Quick Reminder For Pharmacists and PA

January 10, 2012
I went to a pharmacy last Tuesday to get the prescribed medicine for myself. I am so pleased on how are you going to wait for your medicine here, just sit on a comfortable chair and when it's ready, they will call you. You don't need to wait for it while standing by the counter.


My complain is this, when the PA hand over what i ordered, I found out that the blister was opened. We all know why medicines are packed in specific containers and that is to preserve the quality of the product. Any punctured or deteriorated packaging may lead to many things such as oxidation, discoloration and other reaction visible or not.

If you are a Pharmacist or PA, please be careful enough in cutting blisters or any medicine packaging.  It is our responsibility as healthcare provider to ensure that the medicines we are handing to customers are in good condition.

If you have damaged the packaging,  please make sure that the product is not one of those medicines that will react once expose. If you're unsure of this, please do not dispense the medicine.

Or better yet DO NOT dispense any medicines in punctured packaging or any damaged medicines for that matter.
