Following the Rules: How to Find Your State’s Facility Regulations

Facility regulations differ from state to state.

Pharmacies servicing care and community-based facilities need to know the regulations facilities must comply with to keep residents safe and state regulators happy.

Show Me the Info!

Argentum.org can help you find your state’s facility regulations. To find out how, follow these steps:

1. From the Home page, choose Advocacy

2. Click on State Regulations and Licensing

3. Scroll down on the page to find your state, or press Ctrl first then F on your keyboard to search for your state

When reviewing your state’s facility regulations, pay close attention to the required pharmacy services, quarterly reviews (if applicable), medication orders, medication charting forms and medication storage practices.

A Bonus

Often, the state’s website will provide a list of licensed facilities.  Many of these lists can be filtered by selecting the type of facility by location– city or county.

This is a great opportunity to check listings in your area to promote and grow your pharmacy’s Medicine-On-Time solution.
