Board of Pharmacy

The Board also enacts rules addressing professional conduct and standards of practice. Our purpose is to ensure that the pharmacists of Tennessee are providing competent pharmaceutical care in accordance with state and federal laws. To that end, we determine the competency of graduates of recognized schools or colleges of pharmacy applying for licensure, ensure compliance with the Pharmacy Law, and take disciplinary action and conduct hearings when appropriate.

We have received a number of questions from our sterile compounders concerning the shortages of masks and gowns and other PPE used in sterile  compounding.  We have provided the link below is from Critical Point and gives some guidance and informed recommendations as to how to deal with these shortages. Keep in mind these are opinions of experts that are based in sound judgement and common sense but pharmacists should use their professional judgement in each of their practices to make decisions that are based on patient safety and the risks involved with these practices. It is important during this time we keep our patients at the forefront of all our practices and make decisions based upon that premise.  Be safe and protect yourself and your patients.
