Working longer shifts 12 & 13 hours with no pharmacist overlap it's hard to take a proper break to eat, I often get called back to the dispensary multiple times. You need to take regular breaks to be effective but the public just doesn't get that. It really affects my ability to concentrate and I'm more prone to making errors. And I'm seeing a trend towards less technician / assistant hours available for us to use so we end up working long periods with just the pharmacist in dispensary performing all technical duties as well. Mandated breaks are going to be needed to be able to leave the dispensary at all, even to go to the washroom
