Which pharmacy in Phoenix is closest to me?
On Thursday, Fox News’ Catherine Herridge reported that a Phoenix pharmacy has been the closest to her for the last two weeks.
“Mariano”s pharmacy, near me in the Valley Center shopping mall, has been my pharmacy since Friday,” said Andrea Fusco, who works at the pharmacy.
Fusco said that on Friday morning, she went to check on a patient, who had been at the drugstore for the past few hours.
She said she was told the patient was a friend of hers.
She said she did not realize she was at the same pharmacy.”
She didn’t even tell me that,” Fuscos said.
Fosco said she checked on the patient Saturday morning, and found him in his car.
She had not been at his house, and was not able to contact him, Fuscus said.
“I just wanted to make sure that he was okay,” she said.
The next day, Fosco was surprised to learn that her patient was also at the Phoenix pharmacy, Fuscos said.
She was concerned, so she called the pharmacist to check if the patient had returned to his home.
The pharmacist told her that the patient did not, and that she should call the hospital to check up on the man.”
It was so shocking,” Fuscocos said, “because I thought he was at home.”
She also found out that the pharmacy was not the one to handle her patient’s prescription, Fucus said.
In the two weeks since she arrived, she said she has called numerous pharmacies to check with them, but they have not returned her calls.
The Phoenix City Council will consider a bill on Thursday to create a pilot program to allow the public to call pharmacies to ask questions about their patient’s health, safety and well-being.
The bill is expected to be passed by the council on Thursday afternoon.”
We want to make it easy for people to get answers, so we want to see how it works out,” said council member Kristin Garcia.
Garcia said she had not heard of such a program, but added that she would look into it if she became mayor.
She also said she would take a closer look at the possibility of requiring a license to receive a pharmacy license in the city, saying she would have to consult with her city attorney about the issue.
