One Pharmacist supervising three technicians simultaneously. The “Metrics Maven”.
I saw this Comment from AJ and thought it appropriate to put it in a more available space, with my thoughts. JP
“Speaking of Boards of Pharmacy…for those of you in the great State of Texas do you know on November 4th The Texas State Board of Pharmacy will vote to raise and/or eliminate pharmacist to technician ratios? I see this as a bad thing. What say all of you?
AJ will be testifying AGAINST this change, in person, live at the meeting. He is a member of The Pharmacy Alliance and therefore eligible for help with expenses. Members of The Pharmacy Alliance who testify before their board, lobby
legislators or bring light to dark places with investigative journalists will be reimbursed up to $100.00 toward hotel. Gas money. Cost of two modest meals at a place like Chili’s. AJ, save your receipts. You can scan them and E-Mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Um, Broncofan…. maybe it is time for you and AJ to call a truce and tag team at this board meeting. Bring others with you. Go FULL FRONTAL with them. You both know that guys like Bronco are not behind this. You know, in the end it may not be a bad idea, but not like this. Not driven by the chains. They DO NOT run our industry.
I am serious, man. Both of you. As Joe Zorek said, “A pissing contest does us no good.” You are both smart, well-placed and
well-spoken. You guys certainly are not shy. Be like the United Nations. “Well, we have fundamental differences, but we have a common enemy”. Killing this proposal will show that pharmacists DO HAVE POWER. It will show that we are not brain-dead.
Bronco, I don’t recall if you are a member of The Pharmacy Alliance. You can join with dues of $100.00. Attend the meeting and get more than $100.00 reimbursed. Visit www.//thepharmacyalliance.com You can find the JOIN button. Those of you who have not renewed, please do so. Renewal is $60.00. Just click on JOIN. You can figure it out.
Come on, you guys. Not just AJ and Bronco. All of you. You know, disturbing the shit can be fun. It also may do good.
Halloween Day. AJ and Broncofan are leading the discussion. This is important stuff. Visit “Comments” and say your view. Is this like the hog led to slaughter? He knows what is coming. He can smell it. They have him hogtied and are leading him to the guy with the gun-thing that will be pressed to the area below his ear. Nothing can save him. Nothing. In Sicily, hogs live the life. In the hills, feasting on chestnuts and grains that are spread out for them. Their flesh will make the best prosciutto. The killing is still awful.
Pharmacists can see what is coming. AJ and Bronco will tell you. Will they slaughter you? Is it that nothing can save you? Is it hopeless? You are NOT pigs. You fuckers can change this. You hold all of the aces. You just gotta do something, for crissake.
Go for it, AJ. Kick some State Board of Pharmacy Texas Ass. To the rest of you. AJ is taking ownership of our profession. It is his profession just as Texas A & M is Johnny Football’s team. The rest of you want in? Not a problem. Do SOMETHING. You can start by asserting yourself in the pharmacy. Take charge and “Watch me Now”. ”What’d I say?”
