LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


SB 1193, Hill. Healing arts.
(1) The Psychology Licensing Law establishes the Board of Psychology to license and regulate the practice of psychology, and authorizes the board to employ all personnel necessary to carry out that law and to employ an executive officer, as specified. These provisions are in effect only until January 1, 2017.
This bill would extend the existence of the board and the board’s authorization to employ an executive officer to January 1, 2021.
The Psychology Licensing Law defines the practice of psychology as rendering or offering to render, for a fee, psychological services involving the application of psychological principles and methods, including the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of psychological problems and emotional and mental disorders. That law prohibits unlicensed persons from practicing psychology, but authorizes unlicensed persons, including psychological assistants who meet certain requirements and do not provide psychological services to the public, except as an employee of a licensed psychologist, licensed physician, contract clinic, psychological corporation, or medical corporation, to perform limited psychological functions. That law also prohibits its provisions from being construed as restricting or preventing specified nonprofit community agency employees from carrying out activities of a psychological nature or using their official employment title, as specified, provided the employees do not render or offer to render psychological services. That law provides that a violation of any of its provisions is a misdemeanor.
This bill would recast these provisions to authorize an unlicensed person preparing for licensure as a psychologist to perform psychological functions under certain conditions, including registration with the board as a psychological assistant and immediate supervision by a licensed psychologist or physician and surgeon who is board certified in psychiatry, as specified. The bill would prohibit a psychological assistant from providing psychological services to the public except as a supervisee. The bill would expand the prohibition on construing the Psychology Licensing Law’s provisions as restricting or preventing specified activities of nonprofit community agency employees by making this prohibition contingent on the employees not rendering or offering to render psychological services to the public. By changing the definition of a crime, this bill would create a state-mandated local program.
The Psychology Licensing Law conditions the issuance of a psychology license upon an applicant having received any of certain kinds of doctorate degrees from an accredited educational institution. That law requires, with certain exceptions, the board to issue renewal licenses for psychology only to those applicants who have completed 36 hours of approved continuing education in the preceding two years. Existing law prescribes a biennial license renewal fee of not more than $500. Existing law also requires a person applying for relicensure or for reinstatement to an active license to certify under penalty of perjury that he or she is in compliance with the continuing education requirements. Existing law requires continuing education instruction to be completed within the state or be approved for credit by the American Psychological Association or its equivalent.
This bill would revise and recast the doctorate degree requirements for licensure to include, until January 1, 2020, a doctorate degree from an unaccredited institution that is approved for operation by a specified entity. The bill would replace the term “continuing education” with “continuing professional development,” define “continuing professional development,” require a person applying for renewal or reinstatement to certify compliance with these requirements under penalty of perjury, require continuing professional courses to be approved by organizations approved by the board, as specified, and authorize the board to grant exemptions from, or extensions for compliance with, these requirements.
This bill would authorize the board to issue a retired license to a licensed psychologist if the psychologist has applied to the board for a retired license and pays a fee of not more than $75. The bill would also prohibit the holder of a retired license from engaging in the practice of psychology in the same manner as an active licensee. Because a violation of this prohibition would be a crime, the bill would impose a state-mandated local program.
Existing law authorizes the board to appoint qualified persons to give the whole or any portion of any examination provided for in the law, to be designated as commissioners on examination.
This bill would repeal this authorization.
This bill would authorize the board to post on its Internet Web site the prescribed information regarding all current and former licensees.
(2) The Pharmacy Law provides for the licensure and regulation of the practice of pharmacy by the California State Board of Pharmacy, which is within the Department of Consumer Affairs, and authorizes the board to appoint, with the approval of the Director of Consumer Affairs, an executive officer, as specified. That law repeals the provisions establishing the board and authorizing the board to appoint an executive officer as of January 1, 2017. Under existing law, the board is subject to evaluation by the Joint Sunset Review Committee upon its repeal.
This bill would extend the operation of the board and the board’s authorization to appoint an executive officer until January 1, 2021.
The Pharmacy Law requires each application to conduct a pharmacy, wholesaler, 3rd-party logistics provider, or veterinary food-animal drug retailer to be made on a form furnished by the board and to state specified information. That law requires the executive officer to issue a license to conduct a pharmacy, wholesaler, 3rd-party logistics provider, or veterinary food-animal drug retailer, if specified conditions are met. That law authorizes the board to cancel a license if the licensed premises remains closed, as defined, other than by order of the board. That law requires a licensee whose license is canceled or who notifies the board of its intent to remain closed or to discontinue business to arrange for the transfer of all dangerous drugs and controlled substances or dangerous devices to another licensee within 10 days. That law authorizes the board to seek and obtain a specified court order authorizing the board to enter the premises, and inventory and store, transfer, sell, or arrange for the sale of, all dangerous drugs and controlled substances and dangerous devices found in the premises if the licensee does not comply with the requirement to do so.
This bill would require an outsourcing facility, as defined, to be licensed with the board before doing business within or into the state. The bill would require each application to conduct an outsourcing facility to be made on a form furnished by the board and to state specified information. The bill would require the executive officer to issue a license if specified conditions are met. The bill would prohibit an outsourcing facility from being concurrently licensed with the board as a sterile compounding pharmacy at the same location. The bill would require an outsourcing facility to, among other things, notify the board of any disciplinary or other action taken by another state or the federal Food and Drug Administration (FDA) within 10 days of the action. The bill would prohibit the issuance or renewal of an outsourcing facility license until the board inspects the location of an outsourcing facility to ensure that the outsourcing facility is in compliance with all laws and regulations. The bill would make a violation of any of these provisions or regulations adopted thereto punishable by a fine of up to $5,000 per occurrence. The bill would immediately cancel, revoke, or suspend by operation of law the license of any nonresident outsourcing facility whose registration is canceled, revoked, or suspended by the FDA. The bill would authorize the board to cancel an outsourcing facility license if the outsourcing facility remains closed, as defined, other than by order of the board. The bill would require an outsourcing facility licensee whose license is canceled or who notifies the board of its intent to remain closed or to discontinue business to arrange for the transfer of all dangerous drugs and controlled substances or dangerous devices to another licensee within 10 days. The bill would authorize the board to seek and obtain a specified court order authorizing the board to enter the outsourcing facility, and inventory and store, transfer, sell, or arrange for the sale of, all dangerous drugs and controlled substances and dangerous devices found in the outsourcing facility if the licensee does not comply with the requirement to do so. The bill would, on or after January 1, 2018, require the board to provide a report, as specified, to the Legislature regarding the regulation of nonresident outsourcing facilities.
The Pharmacy Law requires a facility licensed by the board to join the board’s email notification list within 60 days of obtaining a license or at the time of license renewal and requires a facility to update its email address within 30 days of a change in the facility’s email address.
This bill would require each pharmacist, intern pharmacist, pharmacy technician, designated representative, and designated representative of a 3rd-party logistics provider licensed in this state to join the board’s email notification list within 60 days of obtaining a license or at the time of license renewal and to update the licensee’s email address within 30 days of a change in the licensee’s email address. The bill would prohibit the board from posting those email addresses on the board’s license verification system. The bill would make these provisions operative on July 1, 2017.
The Pharmacy Law requires the board to take action against any licensee who is guilty of unprofessional conduct or whose license has been procured by fraud or misrepresentation or by mistake and includes, among others, gross immorality as unprofessional conduct. That law also includes the revocation, suspension, or other discipline by another state of a license to practice pharmacy, operate a pharmacy, or do any other act for which a license is required under the Pharmacy Law as grounds for unprofessional conduct.
This bill would delete gross immorality as unprofessional conduct and instead provide that procurement of a license by fraud or misrepresentation is unprofessional conduct. This bill would require that revocation, suspension, or other discipline by another state as the basis for similar action under the Pharmacy Law be grounds for revocation, suspension, or other discipline under the Pharmacy Law and requires the board to take action coterminously with action taken by another state. The bill would authorize the board to exceed the term of discipline of another state consistent with the board’s enforcement guidelines and provide that evidence of discipline by another state is conclusive proof of unprofessional conduct. The bill would also require the board, to ensure that its resources are maximized for the protection of the public health and safety, to prioritize its investigative and prosecutorial resources to ensure that pharmacists representing the greatest threat of patient harm are identified and disciplined expeditiously.
The Pharmacy Law defines “person” as including a firm, association, partnership, corporation, limited liability company, state governmental agency, or political subdivision. That law authorizes the board to deny or revoke any license of a corporation, as specified. That law prohibits a person who has, among other things, been denied a license or whose license has been revoked from serving as a manager, administrator, owner, member, officer, director, associate, or partner of a licensee, as specified, and requires the board to notify in writing each licensee for whom a person is prohibited from serving as a manager, administrator, owner, member, officer, director, associate, or partner of a licensee of the prohibition.
This bill would also define “person” to include, but not be limited to, a trust and would make conforming changes.
The Pharmacy Law requires that fees collected on behalf of the board be credited to the Pharmacy Board Contingent Fund. Existing law continuously appropriates fees in the fund.
This bill would authorize the board to collect a fee of $2,270 for the issuance of an outsourcing facility license, which may be increased to up to $3,180 by the board, a fee of $1,325 for the renewal of that license, which may be increased to up to $1,855 by the board, and a fee of $715 for a temporary outsourcing facility license, as specified. The bill would authorize the board to collect a fee of $2,380 for the issuance of a nonresident outsourcing facility license, which may be increased to up to $3,335 by the board, and a fee of $2,270 for the renewal of that license, which may be increased to up to $3,180 by the board, as specified. The bill would provide that the Pharmacy Board Contingent Fund is available for expenditure only upon an appropriation by the Legislature.
The Pharmacy Law requires all records of manufacture, and of sale, acquisition, receipt, shipment, or disposition of dangerous drugs or dangerous devices to be at all times, during business hours, open to inspection by authorized officers of the law, and to be preserved for at least 3 years from the date of making. That law requires specified entities and individuals to keep a current inventory of these records.
This bill would require an outsourcing facility to keep a current inventory of these records.
The Pharmacy Law authorizes the board to issue a temporary permit to own or operate a pharmacy when the ownership of a pharmacy is transferred from one person to another, as specified.
This bill would authorize the board to issue a temporary permit, as specified, regardless of whether the ownership of a pharmacy is transferred from one person to another.
The Pharmacy Law authorizes a pharmacy to provide pharmacy services to specified licensed health facilities through the use of an automated drug delivery system.
This bill would require a pharmacy that owns or provides dangerous drugs dispensed through an automated drug delivery system to register the system by providing the board in writing with the location of each automated drug delivery system within 30 days of installation and on an annual basis as part of the license renewal. The bill would also require the pharmacy to advise the board in writing within 30 days if the pharmacy discontinues operating an automated drug delivery system. The bill would exempt from these requirements an automated drug delivery system operated by a licensed hospital pharmacy for doses administered in a facility operated under a consolidated license. The bill would authorize a pharmacy to use an automated drug delivery system only if certain conditions are satisfied, including, among other conditions, that the pharmacy report to the board drug losses from the system. The bill would authorize the board to prohibit a pharmacy from using an automated drug delivery system if the board determines that those conditions are not satisfied. The bill would require the board to provide the pharmacy with written notice, as specified, if the board determines those conditions are not satisfied. The bill would authorize the pharmacy, within 30 days of receipt of the written notice, to request an office conference to appeal the board’s decision. The bill would authorize the executive officer or designee to affirm or overturn the prohibition as a result of the office conference.
The Pharmacy Law, until January 1, 2012, permitted access by licensed personnel to multiple drugs that are not patient specific only if an automated drug delivery system had both electronic and mechanical safeguards in place to ensure that the only drugs delivered to the patient were specific to that patient. Existing law, until January 1, 2012, required each facility using an automated drug delivery system to notify the State Department of Health Care Services in writing prior to utilization of the system, as provided. Existing law, until January 1, 2012, required the department, as part of its oversight of those facilities, to review a facility’s medication training, storage, and security and its administration procedures related to its use of an automated drug delivery system. Existing law authorizes the stocking of an automated drug delivery system to be done outside the facility if the automated drug delivery system utilizes removable pockets, cards, drawers, or similar technology and if certain conditions are met, including that the removable pockets, cards, or drawers are transported in a secured tamper-evident container.
This bill would make these provisions operative by repealing the provision that made them inoperative on January 1, 2012. The bill would additionally authorize the stocking of an automated drug delivery system to be done outside the facility if the system utilizes unit of use or single dose containers, as specified.
The Pharmacy Law requires the board to issue a license, after an investigation to determine whether the applicant and the premises qualify for a license, that authorizes specified clinics to purchase drugs at wholesale for administration or dispensing, under the direction of a physician and surgeon, to patients registered for care at the clinic.
This bill would require the board, when a clinic applicant submits specified types of applications, to issue a license or incorporate changes to an existing license within 30 days of receipt of a completed application and payment of fees. The bill would require that this provision not be construed to limit the board’s authority to investigate to determine whether the applicant and the premises qualify for a license.
The Pharmacy Law prohibits a pharmacy from compounding sterile drug products unless the pharmacy has obtained a sterile compounding pharmacy license from the board and prohibits the board from issuing or renewing that license until the board has, among other things, reviewed a current copy of the pharmacy’s procedures and policies for sterile compounding. That law prohibits the board from issuing more than one site license to a single premises with specified exceptions, including issuing a license to compound sterile injectable drugs to a resident pharmacy.
This bill would expand the exception under which the board may issue more than one site license to a single premises to include issuing a license to compound sterile drugs to a pharmacy, regardless of whether those drugs are injectable and regardless of whether the pharmacy is a nonresident pharmacy.
The Pharmacy Law requires a pharmacy that compounds sterile drug products for injection, administration into the eye, or inhalation to possess a sterile compounding pharmacy license.
This bill would require a pharmacy that compounds any sterile drug products to possess a sterile compounding pharmacy license.
The Pharmacy Law authorizes the executive officer of the board, based on a reasonable belief obtained during an investigation or pharmacy inspection by the board, to issue a cease and desist order to a pharmacy requiring the pharmacy to refrain from compounding injectable sterile drug products if that activity poses an immediate threat to the public health or safety.
This bill would expand the authorization of the executive officer of the board to issue a cease and desist order to include requiring the pharmacy to refrain from compounding any sterile drug products if that activity poses an immediate threat to public health or safety.
The Pharmacy Law requires a pharmacy to compound injectable sterile products from one or more nonsterile ingredients in a specified environment.
This bill would require a pharmacy to compound any sterile products from one or more nonsterile ingredients in a specified environment.
The Pharmacy Law authorizes the board to issue a temporary license to compound injectable sterile drug products when the ownership of a pharmacy that is licensed to compound injectable sterile drug products is transferred from one person to another, as specified.
This bill would authorize the board to issue a temporary permit to compound sterile drug products, as specified, regardless of whether the drug product is injectable and regardless of whether the ownership of the pharmacy is transferred from one person to another.
The Pharmacy Law requires a resident or a nonresident pharmacy that issues a recall notice regarding a sterile compounded drug to contact, as specified, the recipient pharmacy, prescriber, or patient of the recalled drug and the board as soon as possible within 12 hours of the recall notice, if use of or exposure to the recalled drug may cause serious adverse health consequences or death and if the recalled drug was dispensed or is intended for use in this state.
This bill would make a technical correction to this provision and would require a pharmacy that issues a recall notice regarding a nonsterile compounded drug to contact the recipient pharmacy, prescriber, or patient of the recalled drug and the board within 12 hours of the recall notice, if use of or exposure to the recalled drug may cause serious adverse health consequences or death and if the recalled drug was dispensed or is intended for use in this state. The bill would also require a pharmacy that has been advised that a patient has been harmed by using a nonsterile compounded product potentially attributable to the pharmacy to report the event to the MedWatch program of the federal Food and Drug Administration within 72 hours.
The Pharmacy Law authorizes specified clinics to purchase drugs at wholesale for administration or dispensing, under the direction of a physician and surgeon, to the clinic’s patients. That law requires each clinic location to have a separate license.
This bill would require the board to synchronize license renewal dates and aggregate fees for multiple clinics under common nonprofit ownership at the request of the parent organization.
Existing law authorizes specified healing arts licensees to be shareholders, officers, directors, or professional employees of a designated professional corporation, subject to certain limitations relating to ownership of shares.
This bill would additionally authorize licensed pharmacists to be shareholders, officers, directors, or professional employees of a designated professional corporation, subject to certain limitations relating to ownership of shares.
Existing law authorizes, with the approval of the board and the Department of Justice, a pharmacy or hospital to receive electronic data transmission prescriptions and computer entry prescriptions or orders for controlled substances in Schedule II, III, IV, or V, if authorized by federal law and in accordance with regulations promulgated by the federal Drug Enforcement Administration. Existing law requires the board to maintain a list of all requests and approvals granted. Existing law prohibits an approved pharmacy or hospital receiving an electronic transmission prescription or a computer entry prescription or order for a controlled substance in Schedule II, III, IV, or V from being required to reduce that prescription or order to writing or to hard copy form as long as the pharmacy or hospital is able to immediately produce a specified hard copy upon request.
This bill would remove these provisions.
The Pharmacy Law makes a violation of any of its provisions punishable as a misdemeanor or an infraction, as specified.
By placing new requirements on a pharmacy, this bill would expand an existing crime and would, therefore, impose a state-mandated local program.
(3) The Veterinary Medicine Practice Act provides for the licensure and registration of veterinarians and registered veterinary technicians and the regulation of the practice of veterinary medicine by the Veterinary Medical Board, which is within the Department of Consumer Affairs, and authorizes the board to appoint an executive officer, as specified.
Existing law repeals the provisions establishing the board and authorizing the board to appoint an executive officer as of January 1, 2017.
This bill would extend the operation of the board and the authorization of the board to appoint an executive officer until January 1, 2021. The bill would authorize a veterinarian or registered veterinary technician who is under the direct supervision of a licensed veterinarian to compound a drug for animal use pursuant to federal law and regulations promulgated by the board and would require those regulations to, at a minimum, address the storage of drugs, the level and type of supervision required for compounding drugs by a registered veterinary technician, and the equipment necessary for safe compounding of drugs.
The Veterinary Medicine Practice Act exempts certain persons from the requirements of the act, including a veterinarian employed by the University of California or the Western University of Health Sciences while engaged in the performance of specified duties. That act requires all premises where veterinary medicine, dentistry, and surgery is being practiced to register with the board. The Veterinary Medicine Practice Act makes a violation of any of its provisions punishable as a misdemeanor.
This bill would instead require a veterinarian engaged in the practice of veterinary medicine employed by the University of California or by the Western University of Health Sciences and engaged in the performance of specified duties to be licensed as a veterinarian in the state or be issued a university license, as specified. The bill would authorize an individual to apply for and be issued a university license if he or she meets certain requirements, including paying an application and license fee. The bill would require a university license, among other things, to automatically cease to be valid upon termination or cessation of employment by the University of California or the Western University of Health Sciences. The bill would also prohibit a premise registration that is not renewed within 5 years after its expiration from being renewed, restored, reissued, or reinstated; however, the bill would authorize a new premise registration to be issued to an applicant if no fact, circumstance, or condition exists that would justify the revocation or suspension of the registration if the registration was issued and if specified fees are paid. By requiring additional persons to be licensed under the act that were previously exempt, the bill would expand the definition of an existing crime and, therefore, would result in a state-mandated local program.
The Veterinary Medicine Practice Act requires all fees collected on behalf of the board to be deposited into the Veterinary Medical Board Contingent Fund, which continuously appropriates fees deposited into the fund.
This bill would provide that the Veterinary Medical Board Contingent Fund is available for expenditure only upon an appropriation by the Legislature.
(4) This bill would incorporate additional changes in Section 4400 of the Business and Professions Code proposed by SB 1039 that would become operative only if SB 1039 and this bill are both chaptered and become effective on or before January 1, 2017, and this bill is chaptered last.
(5) This bill would incorporate additional changes in Section 4830 of the Business and Professions Code proposed by SB 1039 that would become operative only if SB 1039 and this bill are both chaptered and become effective on or before January 1, 2017, and this bill is chaptered last.
(6) The California Constitution requires the state to reimburse local agencies and school districts for certain costs mandated by the state. Statutory provisions establish procedures for making that reimbursement.
This bill would provide that no reimbursement is required by this act for a specified reason.

 Section 4301 of the Business and Professions Code is amended to read:

4301.

Factors to be considered in determining whether the furnishing of controlled substances is clearly excessive shall include, but not be limited to, the amount of controlled substances furnished, the previous ordering pattern of the customer (including size and frequency of orders), the type and size of the customer, and where and to whom the customer distributes its product.
(f) The commission of any act involving moral turpitude, dishonesty, fraud, deceit, or corruption, whether the act is committed in the course of relations as a licensee or otherwise, and whether the act is a felony or misdemeanor or not.
(g) Knowingly making or signing any certificate or other document that falsely represents the existence or nonexistence of a state of facts.
(h) The administering to oneself, of any controlled substance, or the use of any dangerous drug or of alcoholic beverages to the extent or in a manner as to be dangerous or injurious to oneself, to a person holding a license under this chapter, or to any other person or to the public, or to the extent that the use impairs the ability of the person to conduct with safety to the public the practice authorized by the license.
(i) Except as otherwise authorized by law, knowingly selling, furnishing, giving away, or administering, or offering to sell, furnish, give away, or administer, any controlled substance to an addict.

(l) The conviction of a crime substantially related to the qualifications, functions, and duties of a licensee under this chapter. The record of conviction of a violation of Chapter 13 (commencing with Section 801) of Title 21 of the United States Code regulating controlled substances or of a violation of the statutes of this state regulating controlled substances or dangerous drugs shall be conclusive evidence of unprofessional conduct. In all other cases, the record of conviction shall be conclusive evidence only of the fact that the conviction occurred. The board may inquire into the circumstances surrounding the commission of the crime, in order to fix the degree of discipline or, in the case of a conviction not involving controlled substances or dangerous drugs, to determine if the conviction is of an offense substantially related to the qualifications, functions, and duties of a licensee under this chapter. A plea or verdict of guilty or a conviction following a plea of nolo contendere is deemed to be a conviction within the meaning of this provision. The board may take action when the time for appeal has elapsed, or the judgment of conviction has been affirmed on appeal or when an order granting probation is made suspending the imposition of sentence, irrespective of a subsequent order under Section 1203.4 of the Penal Code allowing the person to withdraw his or her plea of guilty and to enter a plea of not guilty, or setting aside the verdict of guilty, or dismissing the accusation, information, or indictment.
(m) The cash compromise of a charge of violation of Chapter 13 (commencing with Section 801) of Title 21 of the United States Code regulating controlled substances or of Chapter 7 (commencing with Section 14000) of Part 3 of Division 9 of the Welfare and Institutions Code relating to the Medi-Cal program.
(n) The revocation, suspension, or other discipline by another state of a license to practice pharmacy, operate a pharmacy, or do any other act for which a license is required by this chapter that would be grounds for revocation, suspension, or other discipline under this chapter. Any disciplinary action taken by the board pursuant to this section shall be coterminous with action taken by another state, except that the term of any discipline taken by the board may exceed that of another state, consistent with the board’s enforcement guidelines. The evidence of discipline by another state is conclusive proof of unprofessional conduct.
(o) Violating or attempting to violate, directly or indirectly, or assisting in or abetting the violation of or conspiring to violate any provision or term of this chapter or of the applicable federal and state laws and regulations governing pharmacy, including regulations established by the board or by any other state or federal regulatory agency.
(p) Actions or conduct that would have warranted denial of a license.
(q) Engaging in any conduct that subverts or attempts to subvert an investigation of the board.
(r) The selling, trading, transferring, or furnishing of drugs obtained pursuant to Section 256b of Title 42 of the United States Code to any person a licensee knows or reasonably should have known, not to be a patient of a covered entity, as defined in paragraph (4) of subsection (a) of Section 256b of Title 42 of the United States Code.
(s) The clearly excessive furnishing of dangerous drugs by a wholesaler to a pharmacy that primarily or solely dispenses prescription drugs to patients of long-term care facilities. Factors to be considered in determining whether the furnishing of dangerous drugs is clearly excessive shall include, but not be limited to, the amount of dangerous drugs furnished to a pharmacy that primarily or solely dispenses prescription drugs to patients of long-term care facilities, the previous ordering pattern of the pharmacy, and the general patient population to whom the pharmacy distributes the dangerous drugs. That a wholesaler has established, and employs, a tracking system that complies with the requirements of subdivision (b) of Section 4164 shall be considered in determining whether there has been a violation of this subdivision. This provision shall not be interpreted to require a wholesaler to obtain personal medical information or be authorized to permit a wholesaler to have access to personal medical information except as otherwise authorized by Section 56 and following of the Civil Code. For purposes of this section, “long-term care facility” shall have the same meaning given the term in Section 1418 of the Health and Safety Code.

 (a) (1) For purposes of this section and Section 1261.5, an “automated drug delivery system” means a mechanical system that performs operations or activities, other than compounding or administration, relative to the storage, dispensing, or distribution of drugs. An automated drug delivery system shall collect, control, and maintain all transaction information to accurately track the movement of drugs into and out of the system for security, accuracy, and accountability.
(2) For purposes of this section, “facility” means a health facility licensed pursuant to subdivision (c), (d), or (k), of Section 1250 that has an automated drug delivery system provided by a pharmacy.
(3) For purposes of this section, “pharmacy services” means the provision of both routine and emergency drugs and biologicals to meet the needs of the patient, as prescribed by a physician.
(b) Transaction information shall be made readily available in a written format for review and inspection by individuals authorized by law. These records shall be maintained in the facility for a minimum of three years.
(c) Individualized and specific access to automated drug delivery systems shall be limited to facility and contract personnel authorized by law to administer drugs.
(d) (1) The facility and the pharmacy shall develop and implement written policies and procedures to ensure safety, accuracy, accountability, security, patient confidentiality, and maintenance of the quality, potency, and purity of stored drugs. Policies and procedures shall define access to the automated drug delivery system and limits to access to equipment and drugs.
(2) All policies and procedures shall be maintained at the pharmacy operating the automated drug delivery system and the location where the automated drug delivery system is being used.
(e) When used as an emergency pharmaceutical supplies container, drugs removed from the automated drug delivery system shall be limited to the following:
(1) A new drug order given by a prescriber for a patient of the facility for administration prior to the next scheduled delivery from the pharmacy, or 72 hours, whichever is less. The drugs shall be retrieved only upon authorization by a pharmacist and after the pharmacist has reviewed the prescriber’s order and the patient’s profile for potential contraindications and adverse drug reactions.
(2) Drugs that a prescriber has ordered for a patient on an as-needed basis, if the utilization and retrieval of those drugs are subject to ongoing review by a pharmacist.
(3) Drugs designed by the patient care policy committee or pharmaceutical service committee of the facility as emergency drugs or acute onset drugs. These drugs may be retrieved from an automated drug delivery system pursuant to the order of a prescriber for emergency or immediate administration to a patient of the facility. Within 48 hours after retrieval under this paragraph, the case shall be reviewed by a pharmacist.
(f) When used to provide pharmacy services pursuant to Section 4119.1 of the Business and Professions Code, the automated drug delivery system shall be subject to all of the following requirements:
(1) Drugs removed from the automated drug delivery system for administration to a patient shall be in properly labeled units of administration containers or packages.

(3) The pharmacy providing services to the facility pursuant to Section 4119.1 of the Business and Professions Code shall control access to the drugs stored in the automated drug delivery system.
(4) Access to the automated drug delivery system shall be controlled and tracked using an identification or password system or biosensor.
(5) The automated drug delivery system shall make a complete and accurate record of all transactions that will include all users accessing the system and all drugs added to, or removed from, the system.
(6) After the pharmacist reviews the prescriber’s order, access by licensed personnel to the automated drug delivery system shall be limited only to drugs ordered by the prescriber and reviewed by the pharmacist and that are specific to the patient. When the prescriber’s order requires a dosage variation of the same drug, licensed personnel shall have access to the drug ordered for that scheduled time of administration.
(7) (A) Systems that allow licensed personnel to have access to multiple drugs and are not patient specific in their design, shall be allowed under this subdivision if those systems have electronic and mechanical safeguards in place to ensure that the drugs delivered to the patient are specific to that patient. Each facility using such an automated drug system shall notify the department in writing prior to the utilization of the system. The notification submitted to the department pursuant to this paragraph shall include, but is not limited to, information regarding system design, personnel with system access, and policies and procedures covering staff training, storage, and security, and the facility’s administration of these types of systems.
(B) As part of its routine oversight of these facilities, the department shall review a facility’s medication training, storage, and security, and its administration procedures related to its use of an automated drug delivery system to ensure that adequate staff training and safeguards are in place to make sure that the drugs delivered are appropriate for the patient. If the department determines that a facility is not in compliance with this section, the department may revoke its authorization to use automated drug delivery systems granted under subparagraph (A).
(g) The stocking of an automated drug delivery system shall be performed by a pharmacist. If the automated drug delivery system utilizes removable pockets, cards, drawers, similar technology, or unit of use or single dose containers as defined by the United States Pharmacopoeia, the stocking system may be done outside of the facility and be delivered to the facility if all of the following conditions are met:
(1) The task of placing drugs into the removable pockets, cards, drawers, or unit of use or single dose containers is performed by a pharmacist, or by an intern pharmacist or a pharmacy technician working under the direct supervision of a pharmacist.
(2) The removable pockets, cards, drawers, or unit of use or single dose containers are transported between the pharmacy and the facility in a secure tamper-evident container.
(3) The facility, in conjunction with the pharmacy, has developed policies and procedures to ensure that the removable pockets, cards, drawers, or unit of use or single dose containers are properly placed into the automated drug delivery system.
(h) Review of the drugs contained within, and the operation and maintenance of, the automated drug delivery system shall be done in accordance with law and shall be the responsibility of the pharmacy. The review shall be conducted on a monthly basis by a pharmacist and shall include a physical inspection of the drugs in the automated drug delivery system, an inspection of the automated drug delivery system machine for cleanliness, and a review of all transaction records in order to verify the security and accountability of the system.
(i) Drugs dispensed from an automated drug delivery system that meets the requirements of this section shall not be subject to the labeling requirements of Section 4076 of the Business and Professions Code or Section 111480 of this code if the drugs to be placed into the automated drug delivery system are in unit dose packaging or unit of use and if the information required by Section 4076 of the Business and Professions Code and Section 111480 of this code is readily available at the time of drug administration. For purposes of this section, unit dose packaging includes blister pack cards.

Once the controlled substance has been dispensed, if the previously created record is determined to be incorrect, a correcting addition may be made only by or with the approval of a pharmacist. After a pharmacist enters the change or enters his or her approval of the change into the computer, the resulting record shall include the correcting addition and the date it was made to the record, the identity of the person or pharmacist making the correction, and the identity of the pharmacist approving the correction.
(b) Nothing in this section shall be construed to exempt any pharmacy or hospital dispensing Schedule II controlled substances pursuant to electronic transmission prescriptions from existing reporting requirements.
