Summary:

A pharmacy providing services to a health facility through the use of an automated drug delivery system, must maintain records of the acquisition and disposition of dangerous drugs and devices stored in such system.

Summary:

(a) Notwithstanding any other law, a hospital pharmacy serving a licensed health care facility may furnish a dangerous drug or dangerous device pursuant to preprinted or electronic standing orders, order sets, and protocols established under the policies and procedures of the health care facility, as approved according to the policies of the health care facility's governing body, if the order is dated, timed, and authenticated in the medical record of the patient to whom the dangerous drug or dangerous device will be provided.

Summary:

(b) A pharmacy receiving an electronic transmission prescription shall not be required to reduce that prescription to writing or to hard copy form if, for three years from the last date of furnishing pursuant to that prescription or order, the pharmacy is able, upon request by the board, to immediately produce a hard copy report that includes for each date of dispensing of a dangerous drug or dangerous device pursuant to that prescription or order: (1) all of the information described in subparagraphs (A) to (E), inclusive, of paragraph (1) of subdivision (a) of Section 4040, and (2) the name or identifier of the pharmacist who dispensed the dangerous drug or dangerous device. This subdivision shall not apply to prescriptions for controlled substances classified in Schedule II, III, IV, or V, except as permitted pursuant to Section 11164.5 of the Health and Safety Code.

Summary:

If only recorded and stored electronically, on magnetic media, or in any other computerized form, the pharmacy's computer system shall not permit the received information or the dangerous drug or dangerous device dispensing information required by this section to be changed, obliterated, destroyed, or disposed of, for the records maintenance period required by law once the information has been received by the pharmacy and once the dangerous drug or dangerous device has been dispensed. Once a dangerous drug or dangerous device has been dispensed, if the previously created record is determined to be incorrect, a correcting addition may be made only by or with the approval of a pharmacist. After a pharmacist enters the change or enters his or her approval of the change into the computer, the resulting record shall include the correcting addition and the date it was made to the record, the identity of the person or pharmacist making the correction, and the identity of the pharmacist approving the correction.

Summary:

A prescriber or pharmacist may electronically enter a prescription or order into a pharmacy or hospital computer from a remote location if permission is obtained from the hospital or pharmacy.

Out-of-state pharmacies doing business in California must keep records of controlled substances or dangerous devices dispensed to patients so that the records are readily retrievable from the records of other drugs dispensed.
