everythings is barcoded these days. Screws, pills are just another
cardboard box that the computer identifies.
The days when pharmacists actually made up preparations using
their knowledge of chemistry and pharma are longgggg gone.
I haven't seen a handwritten prescription in 15+ years _BUT_ I think
that the second guessing may be more to do with the combination of drugs
etc. on a prescription being questioned. These days my doctor(s) seem
to have on their computer screens a list of drugs they can prescribe for
the condition they have diagnosed, combinations that are OK and warnings
about other combinations.
One is picked by someone fractionally above minimum wage, where if
something is wrong they will shrug and sort it out later.
The other picked and inspected by someone with a masters degree who is
legally responsible for ensuring the correct prescription is dispensed.
So why can't a foolproof system be put in where cassettes of pill boxes -
tamperproof and direct from manufacturer - can be loaded into a machine and
issued in response to a machine readable prescription?
I was in a pharmacy today and they wouldn't dispense a drug as it was
twice the normal dose for a child.
They were going to phone the doctor to check first.
