SECTION .1400 ‑ HOSPITALS: OTHER HEALTH FACILITIES
21 NCAC 46 .1401 REGISTRATION AND PERMITS
(a) Registration Required. All places providing services
which embrace the practice of pharmacy shall register with the North Carolina
Board of Pharmacy as provided in G.S. 90‑85.21 and acquire a permit to do
so. Application for such registration and permit shall be on forms provided by
the Board. If the Board is satisfied that proper facilities and adequately
trained and properly licensed personnel have been obtained which will assure
compliance with all laws regulating the compounding and distribution of drugs,
the practice of pharmacy and the rules of the Board, a permit shall be issued
by the Board attesting such registration.
(b) Exemptions. Nothing in these rules shall be construed
to require the registration with the Board of those health care facilities in
which there occurs only the administration of drugs.
(c) Separate Registration Required. The dispensing of
drugs from separate locations owned by a health care facility, such as
satellite pharmacies, outside clinics, health maintenance organizations, or
physician's offices owned by the health care facility shall require separate
registration if any one of the following criteria exists:
(1) The drugs dispensed at the location are
ordinarily and customarily obtained from a source outside of the health care
(2) The pharmacist-manager is controlled and
supervised from a source other than the health care facility pharmacy; or
(3) The routine activity at the location is
dispensing drugs to outpatients.
(d) Any pharmacy that provides compounding or dispensing
services to one or more health care facilities for individual patient
administration bearing any labeled name other than that under which it is
registered shall require a separate registration.
(e) Health care facilities which do not have a pharmacy
permit shall secure their pharmaceutical services through a pharmacist holding
a current license from the Board.
