    Two Check-off Economics

    The filling of prescriptions safely, using a check-double check RPH sign-off is both simple, cost-effective and quick to implement.

    Retail Pharmacyland has been hellbent and determined to move towards 24/7 Pharmacy operations. Yet Doctor's offices and other critical care facilities (other than the hospital Emergency room, itself) staff for normal hours.

    How many more people must die or suffer because a "marketing ploy" might be more convenient for a few at the expense of "safety" for many?
