Safeguarding the filling process using automated dispensing technology

Recently, paroxetine 20 mg tablets were found in a prescription bottle along with the prescribed promethazine 25 mg tablets. Upon investigation, it was determined that multiple bottles of paroxetine had been added to the automated dispensing technology’s (e.g., vialdispensing robot) cell containing promethazine 25 mg.

The knowledge requirement in a case alleging False Claims Act violations

In the July 2023 issue of Pharmacy Today, I summarized a pharmacy case from the Supreme Court of the United States in which the court ruled that the knowledge requirement in the federal False Claims Act (FCA) refers to “actual knowledge and subjective beliefs—not to what an objectively reasonable person may have known and believed.”
