|(a) A licensed pharmacist employed by or under contract
with the participating provider shall inspect donated prescription
drugs to determine, to the extent reasonably possible in the judgement
of the pharmacist, that the drugs are not adulterated or misbranded,
are safe and suitable for dispensing, and are not ineligible drugs.
(b) Donated drugs may not be stored with non-donated
inventory. When donated drugs are not inspected immediately upon receipt,
the participating provider shall quarantine the donated drugs separately
from all dispensing stock until the donated drugs have been inspected
and approved for dispensing.
(c) The participating provider shall destroy donated
non-controlled substances that are not suitable for dispensing and
make a record of such destruction.
(d) The pharmacist-in-charge shall develop and implement
a written procedure for proper management of drug recalls by the manufacturer.
Such procedures shall include, where appropriate, contacting patients
to whom the recalled drug products have been dispensed.
(e) The pharmacist-in-charge shall reasonably ensure
that a recalled drug has been removed from inventory no more than
24 hours after receipt of the recall notice, and quarantined until
proper disposal or destruction of the drug.
