It makes me so frustrated. My Mom lives kind of far from me. She doesn't have a lot of help where she lives. I have to handle a lot by phone. Luckily, her doctor knows her very well. Her doctor informed me that she told the pharmacy she's going to request an investigation if it happens again. I made this threat once before, but they didn't really take me seriously. I live too far. I bet they're going to listen to the doctor. She was so angry. I really hope things get better.

I was kind of suspecting (sadly) the same thing. If one of the employees is an addict, this could be causing the loss of the rx. Addicts can steal meds from people that really need them, without much, if any, remorse. If I were the pharmacist, I would want to institute some sort of fail-safe controlled system for filling controlled substances that prevents theft. Don't nurses have to have a witness if they are discarding narcotics? That kind of thing, but adapted for the situation.

Of course if the RPh in charge is the problem, that makes it tougher.

Hopefully this won't happen again to your mom. I am glad the dr is taking a stand on your mom's side.
