Pharmacy part 2

  The Arkansas HIPAA laws state that employees working in any kind of medical related job must follow the strict policies for patient protection. As a patient, you have the right to keep all of your information private. At Kroger pharmacy in Russellville, we have people come in all the time and tell us to make sure their med list is kept from other family members. We have to follow their request. We also have had complaints from customers in the past when we talk about their insurance or pricing in front of other customers. We just have to be careful that we don’t say any personal information in front of other people. Sometimes this is hard to do when you’re trying to refill and fill new perscriptions. 
Pharmacy employees should be aware of the HIPAA policies to prevent angry customers!
