Pharmacist refuses to consider patient safety!When receiving a drug that may contain gluten, which is harmful to a patient with Celiac disease, we asked the pharmacist (Eunice) to provide a drug known to be without harmful ingredients. Generic manufacturers often don't divulge this information to patients, but they will to dispensing medical professionals. She refused, indicating that it wasn't her job to find drugs that will not be harmful to patients, and was incredibly rude about it, acting as if patient medical conditions are simply an inconvenient imposition on her day. We offered a list of manufacturers from an NIH website that are known to supply equivalent generic drugs without gluten. She said that she didn't have any of them in stock, and did not confirm that she would order any of them for the patient. In 15 years of dealing with drugs for a family member with Celiac disease, I have NEVER encountered a pharmacist who is unwilling to help provide this level of basic care. She insisted that providing safe medications is not her job. Unfortunately, my employer's new prescription service requires us to use CVS.
