I agree with my fellow Pharmacist about time constraints for Breaks at the Pharmacy for eating & washroom. However, As I am working with an Independent Pharmacy working under constant threat by the Customers who always put pressure to hand over the Medications to them in 10 mins flat puts me under lot of stress & duress even if it is 8-10 medications on the RX with so many patient's coming in at the same time as this is a pharmacy within a clinic of 9 doctors and so much to taken care of viz : if the prescribed medication is right for the medical condition indicated, Drug Dose, Sig & Interaction plus Medscheck & other Lifestyle & smoking aspects etc. As otherwise they threaten to complaint to the owner of the pharmacy, who has provided his cell number to many of our customers & it has happened that they call him & in turn he calls & shouts & threaten me of dire consequences. This I think is true with most Pharmacist working with Independent Pharmacies in the GTA region because of over saturation of Pharmacies. So the College should restrict opening of New Independent pharmacies in the GTA region also because of which the Pay, Availibility of Hours for Work, Attitude & Respect by the Employers towards the staff Pharmacist both at the Independent & Chain stores in GTA has gone down considerably. Also Staffing of Pharmacy Technician & clerks is also an issue with Major stores both Independent & chain stores which needs to be taken care of.
