Pharmacist  ·  Nov. 30, 2017

There should always be at least one person working in the dispensary with the pharmacist at all times. Pharmacists often work alone for several hours at the start and end of the day. Having a second person increases employee safety, that the pharmacist can go to the washroom and/or eat without being interrupted, and minimal gaps in patient care. It can help decrease employee stress and will help prevent dispensing errors as well. Many dispensing errors can be attributed to fatigue and lack of help. We devote so much time taking care of our patients and will continue to do so. But our health and wellbeing in the workplace matter as well.
