Feedback for Exemptions and Exclusions Under the Employment Standards ActPharmacist · Dec. 3, 2017
I believe that many of the exemptions are contributing to fatigue, burnout, sub-optimal decision-making and poor nutritional habits (i.e. long gaps between meals, extremely fast eating). These have effects on the long-term health/well-being of pharmacists, their health burden on the public and private (read: employer-paid) systems and the overall longevity of pharmacist careers in given settings.
Community pharmacies are at the same triage-level as general practitioner offices. As a result, emergent cases can be given STAT treatments at the hospital and others can wait. It would be prudent for all pharmacies to make closure/break times available to all other local health care providers.Reply or Back
