Pharmacy Technician- Part Time
Pharmacy technicians, under the supervision of a licensed pharmacist, help the pharmacists provide medication and other health care products to patients and consumers. Technicians usually perform routine tasks to help prepare prescribed medication, such as counting tablets and labeling bottles. They also perform administrative duties, such as answering phones, stocking shelves, and operating cash registers. Pharmacy technicians' responsibilities include the collection, organization, and evaluation of patient information, the management of medication distribution, and providing drug information and education to the patient or consumer. The pharmacy technician will be given the task of preparing, dispensing, distributing, and administering medications under the direct supervision of the pharmacist. The technician must have a complete understanding and appreciation for the use and side effects of prescription and nonprescription drugs used to treat common disease states. They must also demonstrate ethical conduct and maintain confidentiality of patient information. In a retail pharmacy setting, pharmacy technicians receive written prescriptions or requests for prescription refills from patients. They also may receive prescriptions sent electronically from the doctor’s office. They must verify that information on the prescription is complete and accurate. Depending on state law, the technician may be given the responsibility to prepare the prescription, retrieve, count, pour, weigh, measure, and sometimes mix the medication. Then, they prepare the prescription labels, select the type of prescription container, and affix the prescription and auxiliary labels to the container. Once the prescription is filled, technicians price and file the prescription, which must be checked by a pharmacist before it is given to the patient. Technicians may establish and maintain patient profiles, prepare insurance claim forms, and stock and take inventory of prescription and over-the-counter medications. The most important characteristic of these pharmacy technician duties is the need for absolute accuracy and precision in both the technical and clerical aspects of the job to ensure patient health and safety. This job description is to be used as a guide for accomplishing Company and department objectives, and only covers the primary functions and responsibilities of the position. It is in no way to be construed as an all encompassing list of duties.
