CVS Pharmacy — pharmacist refused to fill prescriptions for norco and ms contin and also refused to contact the ordering physician regarding the medications
The CVS pharmacy in Dover Ohio Terri Anthony and CVS manager Brian Schellhaus refused to fill my boyfriend Joseph Johnson's prescriptions for MS Contin and Norco without discussion with the ordering physician. Joe was in a severe car vs semi accident in Greenville Kentucky May 25, 2017. He was life flighted and transferred among hospitals, ending up at University of Louiville Hospital. He had a severe deep injury to left upper arm, exposing the brachial artery ripping part of bicep off and requiring several surgical procedures under anesthesia to change dressing. He was discharges 6/1/2017, we returned home to Ohio and was told to see his medical doctor. The hospital sent him home on 1 Norco every hours after being medicated every 2 hours in the hospital. The medication prescribed did not control his pain. We were told to follow up with his medical doctor who assessed him and prescribed medications to control his pain, long acting and short acting. The pharmacy refused to speak with prescribing physician and refused to fill as I am prescribed Suboxone in the past, which I have not taken since my accident as the hospital does not prescribe this. I have followed my doctor's orders and do want my pain controlled. I find this pharmacy negligent and would like to pursue this issue.
