Pharmacists are currently grappling with burnout, and it's crucial for the Board of Pharmacy to step in, prioritizing patient care and error reduction. This issue significantly impacts their well-being, given their frequent lack of lunch and bathroom breaks, underscoring the importance of recognizing pharmacists as human beings in need of essential support. It's worth noting that corporate entities are likely to persistently disregard emergency regulations unless the Board of Pharmacy formalizes them into legally binding measures.
