Once upon a time we discussed the lack of privacy at a Snider Plaza pharmacy. Several readers over a period of a few months had sent e-mails mentioning a pharmacy employee who yells out names of customers along with the type of medication etc. I had noticed the same thing and it made me cringe just a little.
Well, nothing has changed. The same employee is still at it but now there’s more.
Recently I was picking up a prescription and all of these documents were on the counter. I redacted the identifying information but it was there for all to see- names, dates of birth, type of medicine prescribed. All of this within inches of any customer making a transaction. Maybe I should reach out to an aquaintance who I now know is on anti-depressants. Or contact the patient taking birth control pills who was born in 1994.
