Summary:
Board of Pharmacy. Provides that in regulating the practice of pharmacy, the Board shall consider the impact on costs to the public and within the health care industry through the modification of mandatory practices and procedures not essential to certain specified health, safety, quality and integrity criteria. Pursuant to this bill, the prohibition on more than one prescription on a written prescription order form shall not apply to the entry of an order on a patient's chart in long-term care facilities. Hospitals are already exempt from this provision. The bill also provides that practitioners' orders for Schedules II, III, IV and V controlled drugs to be administered to patients or residents of long-term care facilities served by a Virginia pharmacy from a remote location, and patients receiving parenteral, intravenous, intramuscular, subcutaneous or intraspinal infusion therapy and served by a home infusion pharmacy from a remote location, may be transmitted to the remote pharmacy by fax.
