Don't Waste Samples

Noticed a nursing tech opening up samples bottles of meds and placing the pills in a large container. When asked what was going on, she stated that the samples had expired and it was time to ship them back to the drug company. There must've been over 5000 doses of that one drug sitting in the container.

What a waste. If you get samples, give them out. If you cannot give them out before they expire, donate them to a needy clinic close by so that they can be used. Seriously, someone should not have to be told something like this.
