ReTell Pharmacy

Phew... welp, someone couldn't record until the last second and released this episode way later than usual... and that person is me. Either way, it's always a great time and this episode is certainly no exception. We get into my hypocritical feelings of being on hold with another pharmacy, pediatric covid boosters being approved, and some facts on insulin storage. Last, but not least, we discuss how we handle what often feels like a gray area in our jobs: HIPAA. Enjoy!  Hey ReTellers, wanna know something? You rock my face off. That's right. I love you all and am so appreciative of your...

ReTell Pharmacy

Happy Mental Health Awareness Month! It only took me like 2 weeks to figure that out. Oh and this is also dropping on Friday the 13th (*cue scream*) This week on the show we talk about how different/weird weekends can be vs working during the week. Also, it only took 3 and a half years, but Batman and Robin finally make it into one of our segments. I talk how terrified I am of the fall this year and, finally, a pretty annoying pharmacist of the week. Enjoy!  Connect with the show through and ! Not on the socials? No problem.

ReTell Pharmacy

As usual, it's been a WEEK, amirite?? Don't worry, you're not alone. Such a great time this week and we cover so much!... Including: pts who have a problem 100% of the time, Paxlovid's bad press, and not ONE but TWO pharmacists of the week! Wait, what?? That's a thing?? It is now :) (there's even a nurse of the week in there somewhere) Finally, we talk the patients that come 15 to 30 min before closing... they always have an issue, and we'll never know why. Enjoy.  Have something you want to talk about? I'd love to hear it! Any and all submissions can be sent via DM through and , or...

Hey hey you beautiful ReTellers. First of all, we made it through April... so that's awesome. This week on the show I vent about my issues with Drugdle and talk on some things that may or may not determine if you loan medication to a pt. In #coronacheck, I get a little too happy over a covid+flu combo vaccine in the works. Finally, some of the funniest patients of the week sent in by YOU. Enjoy.  Thank you all again so much for your submissions, feedback, rates/reviews, and sharing the show with friends/colleagues. I can't do this show without you so continue to connect and let me know...

ReTell Pharmacy

Don't worry pharmacy folks, I warmed up the vocal cords for this one. That's right, I'm back to feeling 100% after that sickness and ready to rage-read all of your blood-boiling submissions... ok they're not all stressful *ahem* we do get positive on the show as well, obviously. This week: all the hats we wear at work ranging from life-saving vaccinations to fixing broken fax machines. Also, how often do you wash your white coat? Be honest. And does your state have mandatory counseling? If so, I feel your pain my friends. We end with a little bit of keep-this-on-your-radar covid shot news and,...

ReTellers! We got a good one for you this week. Everything from my near-death experience (turns out it was just a sinus infection) to a tech and TWO pharmacists of the week.

ReTell Pharmacy

There's just so much this week, I honestly had a difficult time coming up with the title lol. Once again, the ReTell Community (a.k.a... YOU) brought the goods this week. It's such a fun time. First and foremost, we give a huge shoutout to all the new listeners of the show :) Welcome! Let's see, what else... oh we talk high maintenance pts, how we should really all be wearing white coats (techs included)  and a certain type of response I hate. There's an entire STAFF Of The Week so you don't want to miss that and no ReTell episode is now complete without talking a litte covid vaccine...

ReTell Pharmacy

Back from vaca! Feeling good, you guys. I mean, I was until we found out about 2nd boosters, right?? Trust me, we cover that and so much more on the show. A lot of fun this week including talking about often needing a vaca buffer day (but not this time!), my obsession with Saved By The Bell, and *sigh* 2nd boosters being approved. Look, I take full responsibility for this, okay? I do. My apologies. Also, we talk METRICS.(aka playing "Whack-A-Mole") This is triggering in itself but can we pleeease get a compliment sandwich from corporate sometimes? Enjoy, friends. -M You're all the best, have I...

ReTell Pharmacy

Okay, this actually may be the longest episode in ReTell history... and I didn't even have a guest on. That just shows you 1) how much I needed to vent and 2) how you guys brought the GOODS this week with your submissions. We get into PTO, gross pt interactions. new protocols that SHOULD be in place for emergencies, and learn about propofol now referred to as "Jackson Juice". Also, I have a rather emotional moment when a ReTeller submits why we're all still feeling overwhelmed at work. Finally, a reminder that, with some patients, you are just never going to win and can we PLEASE talk about...

ReTell Pharmacy

And we're back! My goodness, it's only been one missed week and I missed you guys. Since there wasn't an episode last week, we have a TON to cover and it's just a great time. Michael Jackson even stops by for a minute (true story). We discuss my not-so-educated guess that I'm of Irish descent, work still feeling heavy, and the possibility of 2nd booster doses for patients over 65. Also, there's another variant... and it's stealthy. Some companies are taking down plexiglass, so that's a thing. and, finally, all my CVS listeners are now getting a lunch break and that comes with it's own...

More Episodes

This week on the podcast, I'm in a better headspace and we get into SO much including: the snow days in Nashville (basically a vent session), the expectation of giving 200% everyday at work, and more news on this Omicron Variant-specific vaccine. We end with a hilarious patient of the week and that feeling when you're in the middle of a million things and a patient interrupts your tasks to ask a simple OTC question. Remember friends, you're not alone.
