We arent allowed to put in fixits till it 80. the office is 90 because of the next gen computers. Its a known problem and theyve been in to work on it multiple times. last year a bunch of employees got written up for putting heat patches on thermostats. it was nice while it lasted.

The system we have is ADMicro or ADMmicro. We've had it for years and I've warned you guys years ago. Summer's just getting started and I'll be hearing about it from my RX again just like last year.

I've stuck a thermometer in the office and pharmacy and it gets 80F in the pharmacy. It's off the charts in the office overnight. That's over 90F since I'm using the metal fridge thermometer.

Everytime I open the ticket my idiot boss cancels and says RESOLVED. I don't believe his reasoning in that there's nothing we can do about it.

Just wait until some patient dies from spoiled drugs and gets a giant lawsuit up Wasson's behind. Walgreens will get what it deserves then.

Id check the storage condition on some meds. I'm pretty sure some of the upper limits on some are around 76 - 78. Let your supervisor know and create salvage claims or similar claims on them. After a few thousand of dollars on expired meds you may get your situation fixed.

Anyone ever thought of locating the sensor, and install a tiny heater next to it, so it blows cold air all day? Or wrap a hand-warmer around the sensor.

The AC is metered. On really hot days, if the floor needs AC, it cycles back and forth between the two areas. even if you manually lower the thermostat setting it will NOT come on no matter how hot it gets.

I've seen this first hand.

My pharmacy gets cold as hell.. so we keep an ice pack on it.

As for the office, we prop the office door and cooler door open and set up fans. LP issue? You bet your ass, think I give a shit? Sure don't.

Stockroom door stays propped open too. I don't build coke/pepsi displays anymore, I'm not stacking that stuff in a shirt/tie in that temp.

It gets close to 90 degrees in our pharmacy everyday. Medications have actually started to melt. As far as I can tell, they have no plans to fix our air conditioner.
There are clear guidelines on the temperature the pharmacy nerds to stay at. It's on storenet. If it's constantly 90f then you should contact some local safety department and report it.

We are near a lake temp is not so bad it is the humidity that kills us . The fans do not cycle long enough to get rid of the moisture.

It is either near 80 degrees and very humid or freezing. I tend to run cold so I know it is over 80 if I start to feel warm. It is hard to add or remove layers when you are not supposed to wear a sweater, jacket, or coat over the scrubs. I have added a layer over my scrubs because I was freezing and had the store management tell my boss I had to remove it. I don't know if it was an LP issue or they were concerned how it looked to the customer. They never said. Some people just keep the heater right next to them and don't move unless they absolutely have too. I don't have that option.

I forgot to add that I am already wearing extra clothes under my scrubs.
