Pharmacists are currently bearing the weight of severe burnout, and we earnestly implore the Board of Pharmacy to take action in prioritizing patient care and error reduction. Their well-being is significantly affected, notably due to the frequent absence of essential breaks, which underscores the urgent plea to recognize pharmacists as individuals in need of critical support.

We urgently request the Board of Pharmacy to consider enacting laws that ensure pharmacists are never left unattended in the pharmacy. This step is vital because, regrettably, emergency regulations often go unenforced. Making this into law would not only improve patient care but also provide much-needed relief to these dedicated healthcare professionals. Your prompt action in this matter is crucial and would be greatly appreciated.
