Problems in the pharmacy 

 In any job there are potential problems that may arise. Some are big and some are small. As a pharmacy technician, one of my duties is to count out the medicine before it is released to the patient. There is room for human error in this job and sometimes it does not turn out pretty. It is important that patients recieve the correct amount of medicine. Sometimes it is hard to focus when there is s lot going on or when things are extremely busy. When a patient does recieve the wrong amount of medicine and they notice it, it can lose a patients trust. There are a few ways that all pharmacy staff can reduce the number of errors when counting out pills though. No matter how busy the work place is, it is always important to double count all schedule 2 prescriptions. It is also important to carefully check how many pills are supposed to be given out before counting them.
