General Information
Action Summary Regulations implement the changes in requirements for pharmacy practice to allow chart orders for hospice or home infusion patients, to permit different methods of keeping dispensing records and to allow for delivery of prescription drugs to alternative sites other than directly to the patient’s residence. They will also expand the availability of drugs to indigent patients by allowing a nursing home to donate unused drugs or a physician to dispense donated drugs provided basic requirements for security, storage, labeling and recordkeeping have been observed to protect the safety, integrity and accountability of the drugs.
