DIGEST OF INTRODUCED BILL


Drug regimen protocols. Allows a physician to adopt a protocol that allows a pharmacist to adjust a patient's drug regimen in a setting other than a hospital. Requires a pharmacist to communicate with the admitting practitioner to receive approval to begin the protocol. (Current law requires communication only if a protocol involves parenteral nutrition of the patient.) Requires that when a pharmacist is practicing a protocol under physician authorization that: (1) the pharmacist must be under the direct supervision of the physician; and (2) the protocols must, at a minimum, require that the medical records of the patient are available to both the patient's physician and the pharmacist. Requires a physician to consult with a pharmacist during the implementation, revision, and renewal of a protocol.
