High Importance: Reminders from the Inspector's Desk at the Oklahoma Board of Pharmacy

"From the Inspector’s Desk ♦ 17.18. Non-CDS Invoices: Non-controlled dangerous substance (CDS) invoices may now be stored electronically. Per Oklahoma Administrative Code (OAC) 535:15‐3‐ 18. Pharmacy prescription drug purchase records: “All prescription purchases (eg, invoices) and inventory records shall be maintained and be readily retrievable for a period of at least 2 years.” Invoices for non‐controlled drugs may be maintained electronically. ♦ 17.19. Inspection Reports: After a compliance officer has been in the pharmacy to conduct an inspection, you should not just immediately file away the inspection report. You should keep it visible for all staff to read and until all corrections have been addressed. ♦ 17.20. Media Fill Testing United States Pharmacopeia (USP) <797>: Incubation temperature(s) are 20º-25ºC (68º-77ºF) or 30º-35ºC (86º-95º) for a minimum of 14 days.
