Pharmacists are currently experiencing tremendous burnout, and we humbly beseech the Board of Pharmacy to take steps in prioritizing patient care and minimizing errors. Their well-being is significantly impacted, given their frequent lack of essential breaks, emphasizing the heartfelt request to acknowledge pharmacists as individuals who deserve crucial support.

We kindly request the Board of Pharmacy to consider enacting laws that ensure pharmacists are not left alone in the pharmacy, as this would greatly enhance patient care and provide much-needed relief to these devoted healthcare professionals. Your consideration and support in this regard would be greatly valued.
