Feedback for Exemptions and Exclusions Under the Employment Standards Act

Pharmacist  ·  Nov. 29, 2017

I work overnights. Totally a different experience than a day time work when your brain can take pause for a while. Sometimes couldn’t even able to drink one 500ml of water bottle in 10 hours. Your brain has work with extreme caution and with smooth pace which is easier said than done. With an extended scope of practice and over expectations from the employer and customers, you could easily exhaust yourself within few hours. There must be breaks in the shifts. About 99% Rx are non-urgent. They can wait. I don’t still completely understand the role of pharmacy technicians. What work load of pharmacist are they sharing??? At the end pharmacist still has to sign. The breaks will prevent human errors. So increase safety for the patients. Pharmacist on break means he/she is still in pharmacy so access is not a problem. Also minimum wage ahould be set up. Its a shame for the profession that some pharmacists are working at $25/hour.
