OMG!!!  This is truly horrible.  I was just thinking of moving my prescriptions back to Walgreen's as a brand new one has been build closer to my home.  The old one was always shorting me on my medications so I moved to another pharmacy.   I think I will just keep my meds where they are.  Thanks ShynSassy!

You can't darn the whole chain because of one person or one incident.

I prefer Walgreen's over CVS because I have had more problems at CVS than Walgreen's and I try to support local business. Walgreen's being a local business for me though it is a chain.

This is a horrible even though and I do hope the victum can move past this. I don't think all pharmacies are like this even though you hear more and more problems happening at them.

Just my two cents, hope its coherant.

OMG is right !!!
I copied this whole article to my files because News articles dissappear quickly sometimes, especially after enough hits and pressure from the indited company.
I would copy this, not so much to indite all Walgreens, but to have handy to print and give to your own Pharmacists, just as a heads up and to email to folks.
Privacy is not within these computer systems, as they are networked to other Pharmacies and Agencies to prevent drug abuse or illegal distribution and so forth.
So this woman's info on that computer is reaching much further out than just Walgreen's computers.
Very sad for this lady.  Prayin' for her trauma.

wow! Thats awful! One would think that they could at least feel a tad bit of 'protection' from someone that I hope wasnt absent on the day they taught manners in med school.... Guess they must have been out that day tho.
