Pharmacists are currently facing an enormous burden of burnout, and we kindly implore the Board of Pharmacy to take action to prioritize patient care and reduce errors. Their well-being is significantly affected, particularly because they often have to forgo essential breaks. This underscores the earnest plea to recognize pharmacists as individuals deserving of crucial support.

We respectfully ask the Board of Pharmacy to consider enacting laws that prevent pharmacists from being left alone in the pharmacy, as a gesture of goodwill to improve patient care and provide relief to these dedicated healthcare professionals. Your support in this matter would be greatly appreciated.
