Pharmacy License Defense
The Texas State Board of Pharmacy is responsible for regulating the practice of pharmacy, the operation of pharmacies, and the distribution of prescription drugs in the state of Texas. Under § 565.001 of the Texas Pharmacy Act, the Pharmacy Board may discipline a pharmacist for:
- Unprofessional Conduct
- Engaging in Fraud or Deceit
- Criminal Arrests, Charges or Convictions
- Substance Abuse; Chemical Dependency; Alcoholism
- Violation of a Pharmacy, Health & Safety Code or other Drug Related Statute;
- Negligent Practice of Pharmacy.
The Pharmacy Board may issue any of the following penalties pursuant to § 565.051 of the Texas Pharmacy Act: monitoring, administrative fine, public reprimand, license restrictions, probation, suspension, and revocation of the pharmacist’s license.
The disciplinary process begins with a complaint and investigation by the Board of Pharmacy into alleged violations of the Pharmacy Act, Texas Occupations Code § 555.007. If after investigation the Pharmacy Board determines that grounds for discipline exist, formal charges may be filed against the pharmacist in accordance with 22 Texas Administrative Code § 281.30. The Pharmacist may then request an Informal Conference to resolve the matter informally as allowed by Texas Occupations Code § 565.056 and Texas Administrative Code § 281.22. Failure to resolve the contested case informally will result in an Administrative Hearing at SOAH, 22 Texas Administrative Code § 281.33. Remember, the pharmacist may be represented by an attorney throughout the disciplinary process.
