(a) Accountability. A practitioner who obtains from the director an official prescription form is accountable for each numbered form. (b) Prohibited acts. A practitioner may not:   (1) allow another practitioner to use the individual practitioner's official prescription form;   (2) pre-sign an official prescription blank;   (3) post-date an official prescription; or   (4) leave an official prescription blank in a location where the practitioner should reasonably believe another could steal or misuse a prescription. (c) While not in use. While an official prescription blank is not in immediate use, a practitioner may not maintain or store the book at a location so the book is easily accessible for theft or other misuse. (d) Voided. A practitioner must account for each voided official prescription form by sending the voided form to the director (Texas Prescription Program). (e) Types of forms. Forms may be single or multiple copy forms as provided by the department. (f) Faxed forms. Faxed official prescription forms will be accounted for as in the Act, §481.074(o).
