In addition to typical retail pharmacy services, for patients and employees, we served a renal transplant center, an outpatient surgery center, and a large hospice group.

I initiated and performed a cost analysis study of the most common hospice medications dispensed. The results of that study showed how we could offer a 15% savings for hospice group on medications, by utilizing a

“medication kit”. It also decreased delivery costs while using less pharmacy staff hours. 1993 – 2004

Worked closely with the staff of medical resident training facility assisting with formulary adjustments and other cost saving methods to provide their “based on ability to pay” patients the lowest costs possible. Accomplishments

Colorado Prescription Drug Abuse Task Force, Denver, CO

Was recognized by this organization for my intervention in drug diversion that resulted in arrest of ten people and the revocation of one physician’s DEA license, all in a six month period.

Worked with Task Force and DEA in training local law enforcement agencies about what drug diversion is, the roles health care providers play in combating it, and the need for law enforcement involvement.

Wrote a paper entitled, “Doctor Shoppers; What’s a Pharmacist to Do?”, which was published and distributed statewide in the Task Force’s quarterly newsletter. References

Cover Letter

Bruce Badger, PharmD

I am looking for a staff position in a retail pharmacy setting. I have over 25 years of experience in retail pharmacy, eight years as pharmacy manager. I am familiar with all facets of retail pharmacy operation. I have always been a highly self-motivated employee who works extremely well with pharmacy co-workers. I also believe it is imperative to work well with other store employees, management personnel in particular. My greatest asset is that I develop very loyal patients. What some refer to as customer service skills I prefer patient care. Over time I have come to really care about people. When they have a question or concern I give them my undivided attention and show them I care about their concerns. I make it a point to try to speak to every patient every time they come to the pharmacy. Even if I’m not waiting on them I at least say hello, or thanks for coming by. If patients are at the drive-up window, I will go over and wave to them or say “hello, how are you doing?”

I have embraced the changing face of pharmacy services. I have come to really enjoy immunizations. I have very good technique. Most of the time my patients say they never felt the shot, so naturally they come back each year. Getting a shot is very hard for some people, so I try make the event go as smoothly as possible, and to get them to laugh before they leave. I did one flu clinic last year (outside the store). I have worked a number of MTM cases. These were all Outcomes or Mirixa cases. They were challenging initially, but now I am very comfortable with them and handle them pretty efficiently. Doing a CMR with a patient is a great way to get to know them.

Thank you for taking the time to read through my resume. I would love to meet with the area pharmacy manager, even if there are no available positions at this time. Sincerely,

Bruce Badger
