Pharmacist  ·  Nov. 22, 2017

I have worked 11 and 12 hour days for the past 30 years. Most days there is barely time to eat or use the bathroom. Lunch is usually at 3 to 4pm. Since we have no assistant after 5pm there is no time for dinner which I have to eat at 9:45pm at home. I think the working conditions are inhuman. In fact, there are times when I feel exhausted and unwell but have to continue the work. These conditions are detrimental to quality patient care. I think the public can wait 15 to 20 minutes for a pharmacist to take a break. We often wait an hour or more to see a family physician and several hours in a hospital to see a physician for an “emergency”. Why does the public not have to wait to consult a pharmacist?
