Q:How do I choose a reputable Florida pharmacy?

Find Online Reputable Pharmacy in West Palm Beach

A: There is pharmacy on almost every corner in America. Whichever you choose, there could be anywhere from two to thirty pharmacists on hand at any time-all prone to human error. Keep the following things in mind when searching for a West Palm Beach pharmacy:

  • Location and Hours. This might seem the most obvious way to choose your pharmacy, but it’s only the first step. Make sure your pharmacy is near enough to your house that you could get prescriptions in an emergency and that they are open consistently in case you need medication in the middle of the night.
  • Personal Service. When you fill a prescription, watch the pharmacy staff at work. Are they focused and attentive? Do they leave callers on hold or people waiting in the drive-thru line? Do the techs remember your name and ask about your prescription or medication changes? Do they verify your identity?
  • Proper Staffing. Ask questions at the pharmacy desk. How many pharmacists are there? How many techs? Try picking up your prescription at a different time of day than when you dropped it off, taking note of the staff changes, and if the same techs are working-they could be pulling longer hours, and be more prone to mistakes.

Q: Will I have to pay anything to hire a lawyer for my accident case?

A contingent fee means that there is no attorney fee unless and until the lawyer obtains money for you. When that occurs, the fee is a percentage of the amount the lawyer obtained for you.

Q: Is my mother at risk of identity theft in a Florida nursing home?

A: With the rapid increase in technology, you are right to worry about someone stealing your personal information. The elderly are especially at risk, and identity theft in nursing homes is unfortunately quite common.

A few reasons your relative could be a victim of Florida ID fraud:

  • Access to information : Identity thieves don’t need much to steal your information. A driver’s license, passport, social security number or account information can be enough to open a credit card or apply for a loan in someone else’s name-all items which caretakers have access to.
  • Technological gap : Due to their advanced age, many residents are unfamiliar with technology. They may expose too much personal information online or over the phone, trusting that the caller is reputable and not a senior scammer coaxing bank information out of the elderly
  • Trust in authority : The elderly are forced to put their faith in people charged to protect them, such as nursing home attendants, administrators, police and doctors. Some merely assume the authorities are infallible, or are mentally impaired and cannot rationally comprehend the betrayal or injustice being done to them.

Whether it’s broken bones or burglary, we don’t like to think of anyone in our family becoming a victim. Unfortunately, the people Read More
