First thank you Princess Margaret Hospital for the excellent service you provide in emergency. Our last experience was very efficient and pleasant even though we had a bit of respiratory distress when my child arrived. My bugbear is about the pharmacy prescription we were given. In the end, because it wasn't filled incorrectly for a community pharmacy, I had to pay $50 rather than the $6.50, otherwise we were not going to get the right amount for the right timeline.
It is not just a problem with young doctors. We have experienced this with all the doctors there in the clinics, senior ones too. Could I suggest that there be a hospital wide training about how community pharmacies need the prescriptions written. When a doctor needs to ring through for an authority, etc. It is needed training, otherwise we are forced to go to the hospital pharmacy and that creates long wait times there.
