I was in the pharmacy today picking up some medication and got collared by the pharmacist about some new fangled scheme the government has set up for people with chronic conditions that means the pharmacist checks you're taking your medication properly and are on the right stuff.
Anyway I was taken into the consulting room where a computer had been left on and was full of patient information - names, prescribing doctor and medications. I think whoever had been in there previously was conducting a stock check or an audit or something or other. Either way. I should not have been privvy to this information - data protection and all that.
AIBU to want to let someone within the chain of well known branded shoe type pharmacists know and if IANBU who do I let know?
deesus I would have had the pharmacist I was talking to not been faffing around with bits of paper around the computer and could clearly see herself it was still logged on. She seemed utterly unconcerned.
YANBU...I would not be happy for many people where I live to know the medications I am prescribed. This could, potentially, be really embarassing for someone.
I would probably ring and chat to the manager at the pharmacy...they need to review their IT system so that, if nothing else, the screen is only visible to the pharmacist, or the screensaver also closes down the patients record on screen after a certain period of time.
