I posted in April of 2019 that I had found out from my store manager that Walgreens was moving in the direction of planning a 30 minute pharmacist lunch break . Since then I never heard anything else about this break again until today . Apparently as of 6/25/20 and throughout the rest of the summer , the company is finally rolling this out and making it official . Every pharmacist will be entitled to a 30 minute meal break per company guidelines . Select pharmacies will remain open while the pharmacist takes his or her break in the break room . Technicians and other pharmacy staff may conduct only certain pharmacy duties such as selling prescriptions in ready status or accepting dropped off scripts . For the most part, from what I’ve gathered reading , the break is uninterrupted UNLESS in the event of an emergency or a CAP block . Any time the pharmacist does get interrupted he can make up for the lost time /interruption . Phone calls from prescribers and other parties will be directed to the technician or sent to voice mail . Same with consultations - the patient can either wait for the pharmacist to return from the designated meal or schedule a call back . Breaks will be scheduled from 1:30-2 pm . The company is also revamping their technology and coming up with signage that informs the public about the new hours , including the pharmacist break times , so as to alert prescribers etc about these new changes . Attached you guys will find some key points . Opinions ? What do you all think ?
