All the person working the pharmacy counter would have to do is ask the customer to read aloud what the prescription states. IF they can read it, then chances are they wrote it.

Thanks for the tip, Sloppy.

Round up the usual suspects, and include The Fondren to be fair.

Don't most people use a pharmacy that has them on record so the staff can file insurance or give insurance prices? If the scrip is for a pain med and the individual is not in the electronic records of the pharmacy should that not be a signal to the tech that a pharmacist needs to at least be alerted?

And please don't ask me to read prescriptions handed to me by a doctor. But, my doctors all send them electronically to the pharmacy unless for opioids.

Any pharmacist suspecting a fraudulent prescription should immediately ask the customer to state their disease. That way, the pharmacist will automatically sense if the customer is lying or not.

I knew a girl who went to prison for this. The state takes it very seriously.

I bet he don't try that at the Krogers in The Flowood. Specifically The Castelwoods. #popcrackapowyowww

Another reason having to have written prescriptions for opioids instead of being able to send them electronically is a bad deal.

Pharmacists are not allowed to do that.

Where is the post about Tate Reeves?

Agreed, 4:30. No employer, pharmacist, law enforcement officer or other person can ask/require a person to 'state your disease'. That's pure bullshit. Just as it's bullshit for a law enforcement officer to ask you if you are on medication and think he can require you to answer. Any such question should be answered with: That's none of your business, sir.

THAT'S not Kennuf Stokes is it?

Dwight Schrute said...

To All - yes the pharmacist may in fact do this, and if the so-called “customer” does not comply, then he (or in the rarest of cases, she) may refrain from filling prescriptions from its entire customer base until the matter has been resolved.

As far a electronic prescriptions certain class drugs. Ie ADD and opioids required paper which is easier to fake.

Dwight Schrute: You are flat wrong and could not be more wrong. No medical personnel or pharmacist or anybody else related to health or medicine or pharmaceuticals or patient care has any authority to ask you 'what is your disease' and withhold treatment or service if you do not answer the question.

I almost wanted to tell you that you're full of crap, but since you already know that, I won't.

Anonymous said...

All controlled substances can be sent via electronic means as long as you have a two stage authentication. Paper is dead and the only people not doing this are the lazy old school offices that won’t upgrade.

3:26....yes, all pharmacists are trained as FBI interrogators. They could easily do this.

Drug terminology.....If you are black and/or poor, you are a dope head or junkie and should go to jail. If you are affluent white, you are a victim of an opioid epidemic and you should sue. Mother's Little Helper has been around a while.

He is obviously seeking treatment for that condition on the back of his head-

6:50 and you other folks thinking along the same lines. I am in the business. Pharmacists CAN ask about the specifics of a diagnosis and they CAN ask about anything else related to medical care if they need to do so. In fact, a large pharmacy chain now REQUIRES the diagnosis and date of last visit be provided before a controlled substance script is filled.
Also, the pharmacy can contact the subscribing provider any time they need further information.
These actions are NOT HIPAA violations, and in fact they are encouraged by the Board of Pharmacy if the pharmacist feels anything is amiss.

So in order to fill my Viagra prescription at Walgreens, the pharmacist can force me to declare that I suffer from impotence in front of all of the other customers in line if he/she wants to?

Dwight Schrute said...

2:32 PM, false. You have clearly forfeited the privilege of healthcare confidentiality. You must comply with the pharmacist or face the consequences.

Anonymous said...

Schrute and the self professed expert at 9:57 - The fact remains that nobody in the health care chain of professionals can ask you 'What is your disease' and refuse to offer you services if you don't answer that question.

And surely you all know that your local doctor will not send an electronic scrip to your pharmacy for opioids. He will instead give you a written prescription that you must hand carry to your pharmacy. It's not laziness. It's protocol.

Lies. Lies. Lies. All controlled substances can be sent via Erx. Not only are you misinformed, you are a dumb fuck.

Anonymous said...

No, Schedule 2 controlled substances CANNOT be sent electronically. They have to be on paper and have an actual pen and ink signature. You can send a fax ahead to tell the pharmacy what to fill, but there has to be a physical prescription on file at the pharmacy.

Anonymous said...

wrong again.
with two stage authentication, your lazy ass MD can send in all the Cat 2s he wants. You are just misinformed.

Anonymous said...

You clowns who profess to be experts on electronic prescriptions are simply wrong. Having had back and hand surgeries in the past three years as well as other issues requiring hydrocodone, I know for a fact that none of the physicians or surgeons involved in those issues could send electronic scrips to my pharmacy and they are all using the same electronic protocol. Every one of them said that a written scrip with original signature is required. This includes MEA/ST D, New South Neuro-Spine, Capital Ortho and a Baptist clinic.

I don't know the reason for this requirement and don't care what the reason is since my visits, treatments and scrips were all legit. And I have never been asked by a pharmacist, "What is your disease or condition that necessitates the use of this drug?"

Anonymous said...

no, you are wrong, they can opt for a 2 stage authentication protocol, but it costs money. I send in cat 2 drugs all day long without ever handing anyone anything, and yes, I practice medicine.

Anonymous said...

10:10...What do you mean by "but it costs money"?

Anonymous said...

10:10 - If you 'send in cat 2 drugs all day long', I recommend you be investigated.

Who is the Hottest Reporter in Jackson?

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).


Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.


In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Trollfest '07

Jackson Jambalaya is the home of Trollfest '07. Catch this great event which promises to leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Sonjay Poontang and his band headline the night with a special steel cage, no time limit "loser must leave town" bout between Alan Lange and "Big Cat"Donna Ladd following afterwards. Kamikaze will perform his new song F*** Bush, he's still a _____. Did I mention there was no referee? Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets. Tackleberry will be on hand for an autograph session. KIM Waaaaaade will be passing out free titles and deeds to crackhouses formerly owned by The Wood Street Players.

If you get tired come relax at the Fox News Tent. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both will entitle you to free drinks.Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required, just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '07 is for EVERYONE!!!
