Pharmacy Daily - - Front Page -

A NSW phar­ma­cist who was first reg­is­tered in 2013 has been dis­qual­i­fied from be­ing reg­is­tered for a pe­riod of three years, af­ter be­ing found to have en­gaged in un­sat­is­fac­tory pro­fes­sional con­duct and mis­con­duct.

The NSW Civil and Ad­min­is­tra­tive Tri­bunal this week ruled in a case brought by the state’s Health Care Com­plaints Com­mis­sion, which cited six for­mal com­plaints in­volv­ing Sched­ule 8 and 4D drugs, false en­tries in drug reg­is­ters and self ad­min­is­tra­tion.

The mis­ap­pro­pri­ated drugs used by the phar­ma­cist amounted to over 10,000 En­done tablets, 2,250 Al­pra­zo­lam tablets and 780 Duromine tablets, lead­ing to the “in­escapable con­clu­sion that he was af­fected by drugs dur­ing the per­for­mance of his pro­fes­sional du­ties,” the Tri­bunal said.
