Protecting Your Pharmacist License
Being a pharmacist is a very important part of the health care system. It is very important because you are ensuring that the prescriptions that come to you are accurate and do not conflict with other drugs that a patient may be taking at the same time. You are there to answer any questions that people have about medications, whether over-the-counter or prescribed. These make you an essential part of peoples’ lives.
In the event that you are accused of malpractice or a violation, the Board of Pharmacy will conduct an investigation to find out if there is any merit to the complaint. In some cases, there is no evidence of misconduct and the complaint is dismissed. Other times, evidence may be found that empowers an investigator to further pursue the claim. No matter what, as soon as you find out you are being investigated, call your Minneapolis pharmacist license defense lawyer to help you address the complaint.

In times of investigation, it may be that the state of your license may not be your only worry.
