Pharmacist  ·  Nov. 21, 2017

My shifts are 12 hours long and on certain days, I barely have any time to eat or take a break to go to the washroom. Even when I am on my "lunch", the pharmacy can get fairly busy and I often have to get back to work. I believe that pharmacists working long hours can be dangerous, as fatigue and poor judgement can be detrimental to patients. Pharmacists should be able to take at least some sort of break so that he/she can recover physically and mentally. Also, pharmacists should be able to attend to any sort of emergencies without being disciplined for (we are human, after all).
