    Re: Was CVS Pharmacy right or wrong?

    This part intrigues me...

    Brown told the Fox station that he attempted to give his cell phone or wallet as collateral for the inhaler but was rebuffed.
    I mean...really? They couldn't accept collateral until he could come up with a dollar? I was at a local convenience store once and was 2 bucks short and the cashier just told me to bring it to him later in the day. No collateral, no life or death struggle, just $2 short for a lunch at a freakin gas station and they had better customer service.

    That doesn't mean that there were necessarily people in there. I lived in Raleigh, and walked to the CVS when there was no one in it at the time. Is there a WalMart in the area? That would certainly cut business for them. It could also depend on the time of day. Had they just opened? Were they about to close? Was there anything else going on in the area?

    Now, if there were people in the store, then certainly, they were certainly wrong for not offering the money up to help pay for the inhaler. However, the pharmacists/clerk was the first person to do wrong. They could have prevented this bad press by simply giving them the inhaler (once a prescription was verified) and worrying about payment later since it was probably pretty obvious the woman was having an attack.

    WE do know what time it was:


    , Katherine O'Connor was turned away from the Garwood CVS on North Avenue on the morning of Thursday, Oct. 14 when she was having an asthma attack because they had only $20 for an inhale

    The CVS I walked to was on Highway 70/Glenwood, the main road in the area of Raleigh I lived in. The highway was bigger than the road in your pic, and there were more businesses in the area from what I see in that pic, including a McDs across the street and a Wachovia bank, a Walgreens on the opposite corner, and the last corner had an auto shop. There was a FedEx next to the CVS. There was plenty around it and a lot of traffic, doesn't mean that there was always going to be someone shopping there.

    There is no real way to determine if there were more customers in the store at that time without more information. But it doesn't matter, because, as I said, the

    I don't think "likely" based on population can be deduced either way. There are so many other things that can come into the equation for whether there might have been other customers or not. That's why we have to base our information on the facts that we were given. If there were other customers around who were unwilling to give the couple money, then that was just as wrong of them as it was for a store employee to not be willing to do so. Just like if the problem wasn't actually the money issue but a prescription issue, then it makes the situation different, and the story really is deceiving. I don't think this is the case however, just because the vast majority of pharmacists will ensure there is a prescription, if needed, for the medication before they would ever ring it up, so the $20/$21+ issue wouldn't have been noticed. But I still blame the pharmacists/clerks/employees more because they could have solved the issue first. They would have provided the quickest solution by just giving her the medication and worrying about payment later. Granted, it most likely wouldn't have caused such national attention, but it could have provided some local good press/reputation for the store. Now, not only is there particular store facing negative attention, but so is the entire CVS chain. Granted, I don't agree with that unless the CVS company says that they agree with what was done if the situation is pretty much as it was reported.
