Pharmacist  ·  Nov. 17, 2017

We are dealing with patient’s lives here. Thus to protect the public, we must make sure that pharmacists are not making medications errors due to working long 12 hour shifts AND being short staffed. It pains me to see my patients waiting in line in pain for their narcotics to be filled but I am so short staffed that there is at least a 30minute wait after prioritizing patients’ needs. For my patients, I have skipped lunches and bathroom breaks but I only have 2 hands and 1 brain and can only process prescriptions at a maximum capacity of what 1 person can do. I do not think this is fair for pharmacists nor is it right for patients!
