Feedback for Exemptions and Exclusions Under the Employment Standards Act

Pharmacist  ·  Nov. 17, 2017

In the interest of patient safety, mandatory breaks are necessary. Currently, pharmacists are required to work 8-12 hours with no breaks. In an environment where the pharmacist is required to deal with multiple issues at the same time, pharmacists cannot be tired or burnt out. Since pharmacists made themselves the most "accessible healthcare professional", we have made our profession one of the few, where we have come to be "expected" to care for multiple cases at the same time. This expectation of multi-tasking increases the risk of errors.
