The Tennessean, May 11, 2010
A Smyrna, TN, urgent-care clinic has a new vending machine in its waiting room that dispenses acute-care prescription medications for sick patients who don't want to wait in line at a pharmacy. Tennessee Urgent Care Associates installed the ATM-like medication dispenser about two months ago to become the second urgent-care clinic in the state to offer prescription medications in a vending machine. If a patient seen at the urgent clinic needs a prescription, the doctor can send one to the machine during the visit, and the medicine is retrieved on the way out.
