Tech Ratio

Please add a minimum ratio to working conditions. There is Currently a max amount of technician to pharmacist ratio of 4:1, there should also be a minimum added off 1:1 ratio. A 1:1 ratio is absolute in maintaining safety for pharmacies where companies want pharmacists to work alone completing all tasks, not limited to data entry, filling, verification, vaccinations, counseling. A 1:1 ratio is also mandatory for security reasons.
