Thanks to Rick Henion for the cartoons. We miss you, Rick!
This is how pharmacy is done with the clinic team. Normally we set up the meds in a secure room in a schoolhouse or gym, or perhaps on the platform of a small church. Nurses or pharmacists (aided by the occasional forest ranger off-duty) will administer what we’ve got, and by the end of the two weeks have to advise the physicians about what’s running low, or arrange to purchase some the next morning.
And when all else fails, there’s M&M’s and Flintstone vitamins.
The characters in the cartoons are Kathy T and Ranger Rick himself.
