As a pharmacist for a banner , we , pharmacists require by the company policy to please every customer come to the door , by saying that , we mean we have to take bacon, eggs , soft drink , chips as part of our mandatory job requirements . We spent half of the time to do these transactions because we have a minimal time or technician , and they do not have time to do such . Now , imagine this scenario

Pharmacist : injection line up in red basket Pharmacist : counsel on a new prescription with a customer who has a cartful of bacon , soft drinks , toilet paper , eggs , milk bags etc.... and after counsel on the prescription , ring in the whole cartful of food products .

Pharmacist : get back to a line of injection Pharmacist : answer question where is toilet paper and take customer to show them where the toilet paper are .

And the tasks go on and on with activities much similar like that for the whole shift .

Not counting doctors telephone calls and professional activities .

Time to eat : that is the myth Time to go to the bathroom : lucky if you have 2 min .

Please advocate for the real life of a practicing pharmacists , make a profession a decent job , not sitting in the office and imagine how it SHOULD be done and how it WOULD be done .
