Pharmacists Help Doctors Through Flu Season In KY

With Flu season in full swing, doctors offices, clinics, and emergency rooms see a longer wait to get treated.That could be changing with the help of a Kentucky law.A December 2016 law allows pharmacists to work in partnerships with a prescribing physician to test and treat certain conditions, alleviating some the back up of traditional waiting rooms.Pharmacists hope that by this time next year 20 percent of KY pharmacies will be able to participate in the program.
