Nosy Pharmacy Tech Calls My Doctor Behind My Back
Hi Dave, Not that very long ago I had asked a question about a Pharmacy Technition vs the Pharmacist. It was in regards to a Technition calling my pmd about a surgical script I brought to the pharmacy, she did not document her call in my chart, & the Pharmacist at first told me only he could make those calls but then renigged on all of his answers to me when questioned again. So, I guess my initial question was never really answered. Did this particular tech invade my privacy or did she not? I won't go into all the rest of the details here as I put them out there twice already. If you wouldn't mind giving me your thoughts regarding this issue or what the actual hippa guidelines say regarding a situation like this I would very much appreciate it.
Thank you again,
