That's some pen

Annie: "Dr. Grumpy's office, this is Annie."

Mr. Waterman: "I need your help. The pharmacy is refusing to give me my seizure medicine! They claim you didn't order it. I know that's a lie, because I saw the doctor do it."

Annie: "Okay, let me look in your chart."

Mr. Waterman: "I'm all out, too."

Annie: "It looks like he wrote a prescription at your visit. Did you give it to them?"

Mr. Waterman: "Did I give what to them?"

Annie: "The prescription he wrote."

Mr. Waterman: "He didn't give me one! He sent it to them."

Annie: "But... In your chart it shows he gave you a handwritten script. What did you do with it?"

Mr. Waterman: "My copy? I tossed it. I didn't think I needed it."

Annie: "That was the prescription! Why did you throw it away?"

Mr. Waterman: "I figured it was sent from his pen as he was writing it."

Presumably, Annie has a large jar of her favorite headache medicine sitting on her desk...

"Anyway, shouldn't he just be able to use the 3-D printer in his pen to make some pills for me on the spot?"

Grumpy:
My doctor takes his stylus(pen), taps it on his Tablet and voila, my RX is ordered and two days later arrives at my home. There is more to this wireless, internet thingy than writing a blog and free streaming porn. Why do you think Putin want to control it?

Officer Cynical - haha! Good to see Morse being used. BTW, I clicked on your name and it took me to a page that said you have a blog, but there is no link to the blog. Can you share one?

HAWHAWHAW! Laughed 'til tears showed up. We in pharmacy are always remarking on our magic ESPN, telling the future and the date of birth of the patient that shows up 'I'm here for my medication'

Meanwhile, at the pharmacy:

"What do you mean it isn't ready, I watched him call it in!"

I am beyond relieved that this happens at other practices. It makes me feel better about people asking what to do because their child is suffering symptoms following a gas leak. Um hospital you idiot?!

After 5 years in health care, I told people I'd seen it all and nothing could surprise me anymore...

After 10 years in health care, I tell people that I will never be done being surprised by what walks through my door.

And somehow, this still winds up being the pharmacys fault. Everytime.
