Flexible Pharmacy Staffing has a Long Term Care client Pharmacy located in the Albany, New York area with an immediate need for several LICENSED PHARMACISTs ALL SHIFTS for full-time temporary work beginning ASAP!
Shifts and days will vary, but as far as we know do not include weekends. This is a TEMPORARY assignment, with potential for call-backs. Superstorm Sandy dealt their sister pharmacy a blow and we are trying to help them gear up to compensate for the disruption. Permanent employment is always a possibility, but not a stated goal for this job.
The basic function is to check prepared medications before they go out (scan Rx labels, then product). Also, you may be checking unit-dose pre-packaging, emergency drug kits, compounding, etc.
While not required for consideration, we are looking for a pharmacist who is comfortable learning the computer system and performing review of orders entered by the pharmacy technicians. Basic kinetics dosing skills and ability to answer dosing questions by prescribers and nurses will increase your importance on the team and potential lead to further assignments (including night shift, if desired).
Bachelor´s degree from an accredited School of Pharmacy or Pharmacy
Current license in the state of practice.
IV clinical experience is a plus!
WE WOULD LIKE TO FILL THIS POSITION(S) VERY SOON!
