Patient puts in repeat for Durogesic patches 25 – 2 boxes (and other meds)
Comes back in 3 days later with a new Rx asking for them now and also wanting to collect others. New Rx is for MST 30mg 120 tabs.
Check with patient no longer needs patches. Patches not yet handed over to patient as still in CD cubpoard in bag waiting to be handed over.
Dispense MST 30mg.
No other patient on Durogesic patches, ordered specially in.
Why did she put in repeat request if not getting long with them.
ULTIMATE problem – what do you do with Rx. Strictly speaking not handed across to patient. yet specially ordered in.
1) Do you class as not dispensed and tear up Rx, keep and see if ever needed again
2) You ordered in good faith, they were “dispensed” submit Rx for payment, enter out of CD reg and then enter into pt return CD book and destroy immediately
