The way we do it is a drug rep can come any time he chooses but that does not guarantee that he will get to see a Dr. for signature that day, or that he will get all 6 Dr.'s sig. at the office. When the Drug rep comes into our office he hands the receptionist 6 business cards to put on each of the nurses "boxes" where charts are kept. The Rep sits in the Lobby and waits for each nurse to call him/her back to their side. If we are behind, which happens A LOT, the rep is the last thing on our mind, he/she will not get a sig that day, and he will keep trying until he does, day after day. I for one think the samples are great for the patients but boy are they a pain in my bottom. So many rules to keep up w/ and abide by, the logging in, logging out of all samples, the call backs when a recall comes up, ppl calling ALL the time for samples.
What I do instead of allowing the Rep into my locked closet, he tells me what he has and I have an idea of what we need and don't need, he will leave his samples on my desk and then I put them in the closet, that way the closet isin't a mess all the time(you know they all do it, shove a competitors out of the way and put theirs at eye level)and no need to worry about someone other than you and the doc being in it.
They are responsible for logging in ALL their samples. And most are very plesant (after a 2 hour wait), but theres always a loud, rude mouth in every bunch
and oh yeah , we are fed VERY well. And I think all the pens, clocks, calculators,etc.. at my house ahve a drug name on it....lol
