    Check out this thread in the EM forum:Patients can't pronounce drug names

    It is quite funny, but it's also really sad that people know so little about their medical/medication history. A lot of the posts blame the patient's PCP for their limited knowledge, but I can't help but think the pharmacist plays a big role in it as well. Maybe there is something to all this stuff I keep hearing in pharmacy school about patient counseling. :rolleyes:

    Oh and on a side note this has to be one of the best posts I've read on SDN ever: :laugh:

    If you think about it, most of the stuff we die from in America is our own fault: we eat too much, drink too much, smoke too much crack, piss off the person with the bigger gun, bang the wrong people, drive unsafely, smoke cigarettes. It's not like we're dying of infectious diseases because we have unclean water, etc. The homeless people in this country have it way better than a lot of third world countries.
