Uber-Tech: Hey, check out these directions.
CP: Nice. Another provider undone by the complexity of their e-script software.
UT: Yeah. Really difficult to enter directions when it asks for directions.
CP: I shall call. This should be phun.
Silly Lady Answering Phones: Dr. Zoffis. How may I help you?
CP: I am calling because I need a prescription corrected and resent and someone to give your provider a lesson in how to use the software.
SLAP: What seems to be the problem?
CP: Read the directions.
SLAP: Simvastatin 40mg. Okay?
CP: No. I'm not a baby; I don't need them read TO me. I am asking you to read them to yourself and see the problem.
CP: Phine. Can you have the prescriber resend it with directions that are actual directions?
SLAP: What should it say?
CP: How about "Take 1 tablet by mouth daily at bedtime"? Period.
SLAP: Okay. Can I give it to you orally?
CP: You can, but I'm sure someone would get in trouble. I mean, we only just met and you'd have to come here after work and it's a whole thing so if you could just have the prescriber resend an electronic version, I think that would be easiest phor all.
UT: I can't believe you.
CP: What? She started it.
<2 hours later>
UT: <laughing> Well, we received the "corrected" version.
CP: Pretty much what I expected.
