Keeping patients safe

There's a lot more to being a pharmacist than pouring pills from a big bottle into a little bottle.

The key parts of the job are to make sure the right pills get into that little bottle, and especially that medications don't negatively interact with each other.


Pharmacists also talk with patients -- sometimes people who tend to avoid doctors -- and sometimes, those pharmacists save lives in the process.
