As I was happily driving down the highway, to start enjoying my shopping day, my cell phone rang, and it was the office.
The weekend nurse asked me if I called in a narcotic painkiller, #150 with 1 refill for a patient. Of COURSE not!
I don't know how it is in other states, but in Florida, you can leave a refill order on the pharmacy voicemail. I quit doing this about 9 months ago because there's always a mixup, or they miss the order. These days I always ask to speak directly to the Pharmacist.
Apparently, someone identified themselves as me, from the office of the doctor I work for, and called in this ridiculous order!
My mind is racing.
The most likely circumstance is that since this patient knew my name, he got a female cohort to make the call, thinking all the pieces fit together (after all, there is a Sara at Dr. B's office) - except for the sheer number of pills.
However, as I write this, I'm watching my driveway for a police cruiser to show up and begin to investigate if I am a personal friend of this guy, and we have some kind of black market drug ring going on!
Has anyone else faced this?
