It has come to the Board's attention that there is an issue with Red Caps not being available at this time and that it will take several months to get them in the market to implement.
The Board of Pharmacy had the opportunity to meet with several stakeholders and have come to the following conclusion:
By April 26, 2018, all dispensers of Opioids will:
- Have an action plan written out and be readily available upon request from the Board.
- Have Policy and Procedures prepared and all associates trained.
- In the INTERIM, utilize RED stickers to be placed on top of existing caps which will cover most if not all of the cap.
- Implement Red caps immediately upon availability.
