Feedback for Exemptions and Exclusions Under the Employment Standards Act

Pharmacist  ·  Nov. 22, 2017

It's great that you're thinking on behalf of patients and their accessibility to medication. But what would happen if a patient comes out of the emergency and the said small town pharmacy is already closed? They'd have to wait until the next day when it opens again. In this case, the patient's treatment would also be delayed and by much more than just an hour. So why not have the pharmacy open 24/7 to improve accessibility? Because it's not practical or feasible. Just like in most busy retail pharmacies in the city where there are constant traffic and interruptions, it's impossible for the pharmacist to finish their meal or eat at all sometimes. When I'm starving and my blood sugar drops, my hands shake, I feel panicked, and I can't think straight. Is it that much to ask to want to eat in peace for the sake of our health and patient safety?
