Pharmacist in Charge -- Hospital Setting
A pharmacy license is issued in the name of the PIC and is not assignable or transferable.
A pharmacist in charge of a hospital pharmacy must be knowledgeable about hospital pharmacy practice and management. The hospital pharmacy must have sufficient supportive personnel, including technical, clerical, and secretarial staff, available to minimize the use of pharmacists in nonjudgmental tasks with appropriate supervisory controls in place for the supportive personnel. A part-time pharmacist in charge has the same obligations and responsibilities as a full-time pharmacist in charge. Where 24-hour operation of the pharmacy is not feasible, a pharmacist shall be available on an "on call" basis.
