Pharmacist  ·  Nov. 19, 2017

Pharmacist are humans. we need to rest and eat properly in order to function properly. currently, working 8-16 hour shifts without rest or meal breaks is putting our ability to serve patients at risk. We have to take breaks and holidays and work only reasonable hours like every other health professional in Ontario. All doctors and hospitals offices take lunch break why can't we?

We cannot let pharmacy technicians dispense refills while we are on brake. The pharmacist has to verify the Therapeutic aspects of each refill BEFORE it is dispensed, not 30 minutes later after s/he returns from break and the patient is gone and probably discover a therapeutic issue!
