Pharmacists are currently overwhelmed by burnout, necessitating urgent intervention from the Board of Pharmacy to emphasize patient care and reduce errors. This matter takes a significant toll on their well-being, particularly as they frequently endure the absence of lunch and bathroom breaks, highlighting the critical need to acknowledge pharmacists as individuals requiring essential support. It's essential to emphasize that corporate entities are likely to continuously disregard emergency regulations unless the Board of Pharmacy enforces them as legally binding measures. Therefore, I urge the Board of Pharmacy to consider implementing laws that ensure pharmacists are never left alone in the pharmacy.
