I have been in the pharmacy workforce since 2004 and love that I have found a profession that i am helping in the medical field without having to deal with the bloody side of it. I am a very hard worker and have a responsibility to myself and more importantly God to be a child of Him and thru my opportunities I have been able to experience every type of pharmacy job I could have worked in and I have tried to spread His love in each of them. What comes with all the different opportunities is knowledge, knowledge of how pharamcies work and run. It's a rewarding business and I have been blessed to never had a hard time finding a job and I am one of the lucky ones who loves what they do for a living!
I worked mainly in the narcotics cage while I was there, which is where I prepared and properly labeled patients narcotic medications. I also maintained inventory, keeping up with counts on C2's and ordering to maintain what we needed to keep up with demand. Before being put completely on narcotics I handled triage which is where someone would be the go to person as far as getting labels from the data entry department and the pharmacist to be filled by the fill technician and try to resolve all fill problems throughout the day. I also dealt with the ordering process where I sent and received the order and handled issues dealing with ordering as needed. I for a short time worked on the parata machine, which is a bubble packing machine that puts all the patient's meds in one bubble for that time of the day does, such as all 8 am meds were in one pack together. I started out as just a fill technician which all do in the department I was in but was quickly moved into other areas, only when I went into the narcotic cage is when I had to lose other responsibilities and focus solely on that job.
