Yes I was actually in practice at the time. I am happily retired now for 3 months. My hospital about 3 years ago decided to ban drug reps, so correct in saying that things may have changed....

WORD!

My fav story is about 8-9 years ago the levaquin rep came in, promised pizza the next day, so I let him talk to me.


Errr, would that be the rep. who was trying to get you to peddle (ooops, make that prescribe) this antibiotic http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Levaquin. How many victims of plague did you have in that ER of yours...8-9 years ago??.

Claims such as this can be checked for veracity on line!!


So i had him banned from the hospital.

Just like that!! Dr. House ....or not

About a month later he literally snuck into the ER in the night and begged to be re-admitted. So I had him buy a large pizza for each and every staff member, janitor, clerk working that evening. He did. We had stacks of pizza from floor to ceiling. So I relented and made the necessary phone calls.

Sorry ....in an ER department where anyone needs to sneak in at night and beg to be readmitted there's likely to be no-one there to re-admit them. This scenario would be plausible in, maybe, Somalia, Sierra Leone, Sochi or a TMF board.... but really.

You're assuming that the folk reading these threads have no knowledge or a particular skill set when it comes to evaluating your claims. Don't insult them with your nitwittery.

I'm sure you were very important in your ER position (you told us that)....
