About The Redheaded Pharmacist Blog:
The site you are visiting is a BLOG about pharmacy written from the perspective of a retail pharmacist. Basically I have too much free time, I like to write, I’m opinionated and I work full time in a pharmacy so the natural thing for me to do is start writing about my job and my experiences being a very small part of the huge United States healthcare system.
A little about me personally. I am a pharmacist working in retail. I’m in my mid 30s and yes I have red hair. I was trying to figure out what to call my blog and I am always known as the red headed guy anyway so why not go with it? So that is what I decided to call this blog.
This blog will basically be my thoughts,opinions, and stories from my experiences working as a pharmacist. I will also try to write about current events and legislative developments that impact the world of pharmacy. I have been working full time in retail pharmacy for more than a decade now and have seen a lot. I’ve been told I should write a book which I considered doing but I like the idea of the interactive nature of a blog better.
I don’t expect to have readers here (other than myself) but if by chance some people do come here and read what I write I welcome them and I encourage them to return in the future. Comments are welcome so feel free to leave any thoughts or questions. I enjoy any kind of feedback including post comments or e-mails. I am also active on a few of the more popular social networking sites which you can find the links to on the main page. Don’t hesitate to send me a message even if it is just to say hi.
Tentative blog posting schedule (as of Monday March 28th, 2011) will be Mondays and Thursdays. I will also try to write something occasionally on a Saturday if I have time. If this changes I’ll update this section to inform everyone of the new posting schedule. The inaugural post was Dec 9th, 2009. This is not meant to be a serious blog. Any similarities between stories you read here and people you know are purely coincidental. If you actually see patient names on this site you can bet they are fictitious names I’ve created to protect the privacy of real customers and patients. This site is 100% HIPAA compliant!
This pharmacy blog is for entertainment purposes only! Always keep in mind that the words you read here are mere opinions written by one pharmacist with a retail background and bias. I started this site because I enjoyed reading other pharmacy related blogs and they inspired me to start this little slice of the internet. I will continue to write for anyone that enjoys reading my posts so sit back and enjoy and thank you for stopping by my site.
Disclaimer: This blog represents the opinions of the author and the author alone. It does not represent any pharmacy group or organization. I also will leave out or change the names of patients/customers to protect their privacy and comply with government regulations regarding patient privacy rights and personal information.
Welcome to my world,
The Redheaded Pharmacist
