Hartford pharmacists are advanced licensed professionals who hold the ultimate responsibility at a pharmacy. They are required to check overall prescriptions that have been filled by technicians to assure their occurrence and are also responsible for patient safety and education.
It Could All Be Taken Away
Many pharmacy schools are dual degree programs, which means that a Hartford pharmacist will earn their bachelor’s degree alongside their PharmD over a period of 6-7 years. After completion of the schooling required, a pharmacist must then take two licensing exams. The first is the North American Pharmacist Licensure Exam and in Hartford a pharmacist must also take the Multistate Pharmacy Jurisprudence Examination and pass with a score of at least 75 or better. After passing these exams, a pharmacist is legally licensed to practice, however a license can be revoked by the following situations:
Criminal convictions. If a pharmacist is convicted of a felony, the Board has the ability to revoke a license upon imprisonment.
Incompetence. If a pharmacist gives patients the wrong dosages or wrong medications, this could result in the loss of license.
HIPAA violations. If a pharmacist fails to safeguard patient confidentiality, this could result in the revocation or suspension of license.
