California attorneys helping California Board of Pharmacy licensees
Are you facing a license investigation, accusation, or statement of issues by the California Board of Pharmacy? Our law firm’s experienced legal team of license defense attorneys, paralegals, lawyers, and professionals can help you protect your pharmacist or pharmacy technician license.
As a pharmacist, you are much more than a mere dispenser of physician-prescribed medicine. You also take on the responsibilities of working with physicians and other health practitioners in determining dosages, looking for drug interactions, counseling people on side effects of medications and, in some settings, monitoring the health and progress of patients to ensure what you dispense is used safely and effectively.
Depending on where we find you — in community settings such as retail drugstores or in health care facilities, such as hospitals and clinics — we know you are also experts at advising consumers on over-the-counter medications as well as prescription drugs. In addition to being versed on health topics, such as diet, exercise, and stress management, you are adept at providing information on products such as durable medical equipment or home health care supplies. Your skills help patients with conditions such as asthma, diabetes, smoking cessation, or high blood pressure, making you a convenient, valuable go-to resource for consumers for general health concerns.
If you are a pharmacist employed at a health care facility, your position carries a great deal of responsibility as well as vulnerability, since you advise medical staff on the selection and effects of drugs and the preparation of intravenous sterile solutions, as you plan, monitor, and evaluate drug regimens. You may also counsel hospitalized patients on the use of drugs before they are discharged, making your ability to explain things in everyday language a vital part of your expertise.
Preparing to become a licensed pharmacist is an extensive process, encompassing many years of schooling, training, examination and practice. Your license’s governing agency, the California Board of Pharmacy does not permit your license to be transferred to other states. This makes a California pharmacist’s license even more unique – its defense worthy of the services of a professional license attorney versed in all aspects of helping a pharmacist retain their rights to practice their chosen profession.

Not everyone, when walking up to their local pharmacy counter, knows he or she is being greeted by the pharmacy technician and not the pharmacist. That means your “representative” status as a pharmacy tech is an important one to both customers as well as the pharmacists on staff. Don’t discount the amount of knowledge, training and detail-oriented skills your position demands even if you’re not the one with the doctorate degree.
Your responsibility under the direct supervision and control of a pharmacist to perform the packaging and non-discretionary tasks related to the processing of a prescription is one that can often be as heavy as the pharmacist’s own. Your knowledge of pharmaceutical and medical terminology as well as abbreviations and symbols used for charting and dispensing medications is vital, helping to maintain the reputation of the pharmacy itself.
The key is not to permit the years of training and experience you have already accumulated to become subject to accusations without having a California pharmacy board license defense attorney on your side to represent you. Call Rose Law at (8005) 456-3767 or contact us online to speak to a pharmacy license lawyer about the investigation or accusation against you. We are experts in defending California state-issued pharmacy tech licenses and can help you get your career get back on track.
