Be Prepared This Holiday Season

The holiday season is quickly approaching! As fun and exciting as the holiday season can be, it can also bring some challenges when it comes to balancing work, deadlines, and family schedules.

Many businesses have the ability to shut down for a few days to enjoy the holidays with their family and friends. Unfortunately, pharmacies don’t receive that same privilege. Pharmacists stay busy to ensure all of their patients receive their medications in a timely manner.

The holiday season is supposed to be a time for relaxing, fun, and celebration; however, this time of year can be challenging for a pharmacist. Pharmacists who have families may find it hard to balance children being out of school, preparing for the holidays, and staying on top of work.  All of this can contribute to staffing challenges in pharmacies.

The holidays are one of the best times of the year to rely on a backup pharmacy partner that operates 24x7x365. In fact, most pharmacies do. Care Services historically sees an increase in prescription volume during the holidays as pharmacies take advantage of the extra support needed to ensure timely fulfillment to facility residents. As you’re making plans for your holiday season, remember to include your backup pharmacy partner. We’ll be working around the clock to help you enjoy the holidays. Let us know how we can help!
