hi support hi support. law and not regulation please. every corporate disregard regulations. board of pharmacy needs to do more to make this law so there is actually an impact. nothing is done with regulation right now by corporate. I still have no lunch break or bathroom break. it's so easy to make a medication error mistake at work and I work 12 hours consecutively with no help. and I'm burn out and this affects patient care. even though I try to come early and stay after hours to finish work- there is too much work. I come in for a 12 hour shift and I do 16 hours of work with 4 hours unpaid. I do unpaid hours of work every day and corporate threatens to fire pharmacist if they make one mistake but add more to my plate to do. the increasing task make it easy to make a medication error when you are understaff, not fed and not have time to go bathroom- it should be a right. why do I have to beg for human right to eat lunch or go bathroom.
