Case Study-A Pharmaceutical salesperson
A pharmaceutical salesperson has just brought in a supply of nonprescription vitamin samples for the physicians in your practice to dispense to their patients. These vitamins are a new expensive variety that is being given away to patients who are on a limited income and cannot afford to buy them. The other staff members take the samples home for their families\’ personal use. They tell you to do the same since the samples will become outdated before the physicians can use all of them. It would save you money.
