Burnt out RPh's

Dear VABOP members, 

As our representatives for the way pharmacy practice is conducted in the state of VA, please listen to our grievances in the retail setting.

We are overworked to death by our bosses & companies. They do not care that we do not have time to eat, take a quick mental rest break or even go to the restrooms! They just want us to take our of our now rude, demanding & impatient customers. 

And that vaccines take 1st priority over prescriptions for our sick customers. They are in fact bullying us why not doing enough vaccines. 

Conditions have become unsafe & lots of rx errors are on the rise. Of course it is the RPh license who is at risk & not our employer. 

I implore that you step in and make some serious changes before there is noone left who wants to work in this industry. 

Thank you
