      "Yes, the pharmacist and I are the ones that order prescriptions most of the time. I also check what's low and order specialty if it's a fast mover. I make sure the on hands are right for the computer to order what's on auto order. I also help the pharmacist manager every year when there is inventory and make sure it was done right with nothing missing and control inventory when we come at 9 pm and count all controls."

      "I am usually the technician who has been doing the ordering for the medications and supplies. I also helped out on the inventory. I learned how keeping equipment in one spot is very important, so it doesn't get misplaced or lost."

      Rachelle's Answer

      Keeping equipment in order is very important, indeed! Try going into as much detail as you can relating to your inventory and ordering activities.
