Pharmacists Being Overworked

Dear Pharmacists,


Last week, nbcnews.com released an article addressing the concerns of pharmacists and staff being overworked and understaffed which can lead to patient safety concerns. It highlights the fact chain pharmacists work 12-hour shifts with practically no breaks and more workload. From miscounting to wrong dosage/drug, the additional pressure pharmacists and staff experience from an increased workload with little help is alarming. This article will hopefully be an insight to the general public to make changes to how pharmacies are run in the future for patient safety.
