The quote of the day comes from Mike Kim, RPh., who owns a Washington, DC community pharmacy named Grubb’s. His pharmacy has the contract to fill all the prescriptions for members of Congress. Grubb’s delivers upwards of 100 prescriptions a day to the Office of Attending Physician which serves Congress.
Mike Kim, the reserved pharmacist-turned-owner of the pharmacy, said he has gotten used to knowing the most sensitive details about some of the most famous people in Washington.
“At first it’s cool, and then you realize, I’m filling some drugs that are for some pretty serious health problems as well. And these are the people that are running the country,” Kim said, listing treatments for conditions like diabetes and Alzheimer’s.
“It makes you kind of sit back and say, ‘Wow, they’re making the highest laws of the land and they might not even remember what happened yesterday.’”
Not only is it scary that you have politicians with Alzheimer’s that are still in office but a hack of their patient database would be quite the blackmail tool.
