Was my confidentiality violated?
#1
Ok i mentioned elsewhere that i had a seizure last friday.  The doctor was real bitchy. The gave me a tox screen and she handed the results to my aunt who came to pick me up. Made no attempt to hand it to me, and she had no idea who the person with me was. Could have been my boss for all she knew.

Since im asking i have a similar incident from years ago. Local riteaid sold an item associated with diabetes/insulin. The clerk says top of her lungs "we don't sell nee____ anymore". Certainly in bad taste but against the law?

Rite-Aid is a pain in my side ... Out of any Pharmacy I've ever used, they were the worst example of a pharmacy EVER... Don't get me wrong... CvS is running a very close second, but it's the big chains that scooped up all the "Mom and Pop" stores and now we have to deal with them ...

I do not use hyp0d3rmics at all ( I just hate getting a shot for ANY reason ) , but it would seem to me that it wouldn'y make a difference if a person used them for rec, has diabetes or giving the dang dog a shot, it's not their business what I'm doing with it... It would seem they wouldn't want folks to re-use old ones for fear of spreading other catchable crap.... They certainly are not stopping anyone from doing what they are gonna do by refusing to sell new ones, they are promoting the spread of disease ...

That would kinda be like mickey D's or Burger King sayin, "We don't have straws anymore, cause too many folks used them the wrong way."

What a bunch of knotheads.... And they consider themselves "professionals" ... Really!?

I hope u r okay now Rattzo. I remember u for many years.

I would be pissed. Thoroughly.

As an aside, I would take cashier jobs in drugstores or pharmacies at varying times. The pharmacist? Straight outta its a wonderful life. He drank and did not hide it at all. Would be too drunk to open the doors of RiteAid for all the real workers till hours too late.

Just cuz they are pharmacists, or work in a pharmacy, does not mean they are not drug addicts and gossipers. But they arre idiots and should be tossed from the profession.

What is the Rite Aid scandal?

In a complaint filed in federal court, the FTC says that from 2012 to 2020,
Rite Aid deployed artificial intelligence-based facial recognition technology in
order to identify customers who may have been engaged in shoplifting or
other problematic behavior.




What company did Rite Aid merge with?

Walgreens

Walgreens. In October 2015, Walgreens Boots Alliance agreed to buy Rite-Aid
for about $17 billion, including debt, to boost Walgreens' U.S. footprint.
But in January 2017, the deal was scaled back, as Walgreens projected it
would need to sell as many as 1,200 Rite-Aid stores for the merger to
meet regulatory approval.
Oct 17, 2023


Rivals CVS and Walgreens got bigger while Rite Aid got smaller at a time when
ballooning health care costs made it difficult to compete without scale. With costs
spiraling and revenue stagnant, Rite Aid's debt started to become too much of
a burden, and the company piled up nearly $3 billion in net losses since 2018.

Why did Rite Aid stock crash?

Deteriorating sales left the company with less money to invest in its businesses,
and more difficulty in paying back its debt. As of June, according to company filings,
it had $3.3 billion in debt, not counting the pending opioid litigation.
Rite Aid's stock has fallen nearly 80 percent since the start of the year.
Oct 15, 2023




Philadelphia-based Rite Aid has said since it filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy seven months ago
that it will close more than 520 locations, according to a Bloomberg News analysis of court records.
