An Oregon public healthcare facility that utilizes a Registered Nurse to dispense medications requires registration with the Oregon Board of Pharmacy as a Community Health Clinic (CHC).
Oregon Administrative Rule 855-043-0710 states that a Community Health Clinic Drug Outlet must employ a Medical Director who is an Oregon practitioner with prescriptive and dispensing authority. The CHC must designate a representative employee who will be the contact person for the Oregon Board of Pharmacy and must be onsite the majority of the CHC’s normal operating hours.
The Medical Director or the designated representative must conduct and document an annual review of the outlet. The completed report form must be filed in the clinic, and be available to the Board for inspection for three years.
The form is available below for downloading. Once completed, the self-inspection report must be retained in the clinicand be readily retrievable by a Board Inspector.
