Chrissy Kopple with the National Association of Chain Drug Stores (NACDS) told us that the industry is working on programs to ensure quality and safety. And she said:
NACDS and individual chains will continue to work with the Oregon Board of Pharmacy to maximize patient safety and health…That objective is best achieved not through one survey, but rather through a longstanding commitment, time-tested insights and the best available information about the many factors that contribute to safety and health.
How much do you know about the place where you get your prescriptions filled? If you’ve changed pharmacies, why did you take your business elsewhere? Did a pharmacist ever make a mistake in dispensing your medication? What questions do you have about what’s being done to prevent pharmacy errors?
