Unsafe pharmacy conditions

I am a 27 year pharmacist and have never seen the retail setting deteriorate to this level. I was Pharmacist at one of the huge corporations and quit a month and a half ago due to burn out, exhaustion, fear of license issues, and overwhelmed  to the maximum. I was extremely concerned of an increase in errors due to no help.  I even have to pay a 35K bonus back because I could not even wake I one year contract. The workload was massive for the pharmacists with no support from management. Things must change or there is going to be a huge healthcare crisis.
