North Carolina: pharmacists can report working conditions to board
Recent reports have highlighted challenges for pharmacists working at understaffed facilities and facing higher demand for services during the COVID-19 pandemic. The North Carolina Board of Pharmacy has created a complaint form for pharmacists "to report working conditions in their pharmacy that they believe are creating a threat to public health and safety." The Board will then investigate these complaints. The form asks about the number of staff, pharmacist to technician ratio, extra hours required to catch up on tasks, vaccination and COVID testing volume and responsibilities, prescription backlog and number of prescription fulfillments required per hour, and support from pharmacy management.
