I believe the hours of work with no options for a break should be removed. This poses significant risk to the public when a pharmacist is unable to take the necessary mental break required in their day. Fatigue and the lack of proper nutrition slow down the analytic thought process. I have worked at pharmacies that scheduled for 1 hour shifts with no relief, you are either eating in the dispensary or not at all. There is no mental rest during the day to ensure you are performing at peak. To borrow from other health professionals such as nursing, they work 12 hour shifts with scheduled breaks and eating periods.
