Didn’t Sign Up For This

| Working | February 12, 2016

(I work at a retirement home and on this particular day am covering the concierge’s break when a taxi pulls up and the driver comes in with a pharmacy bag.)

Driver: “Hi, I was asked to deliver this bag here.”

Me: “Sure, who is it for?”

Driver: “I’m not sure. Oh, it says [Resident] on the bag.”

Me: “All right, I’ll call her and have the nurses take it up. Thank you.”

(The driver leaves and I pick up the bag while checking the computer for the resident’s phone number. It’s only then that I see in the big red phrase: ‘Controlled substance. Must be signed for.’ Yeah, I didn’t sign for it and it was delivered by a taxi driver of all people. It wasn’t the last time restricted medications were delivered by taxi either!)
