Pharmacy Manager Change
If a licensed pharmacist ceases to be engaged as a pharmacy manager, the proprietor shall notify the Registrar in writing five days prior to the change , providing the name of the new manager.
The pharmacy manager is the licensed pharmacist who has been designated by the proprietor of a proprietary pharmacy to have authority over and be responsible for the operation of the pharmacy and who is named in the permit issued for the pharmacy as the manager. A licensed pharmacist assumes significant responsibilities when designated as the manager of a pharmacy and is critical to ensuring that appropriate policies and practices are established and implemented by the pharmacy for the optimal care and safety of its patients.
- Ensure that the new pharmacy manager is aware of and has access to the COMPASS username and password.
- Ensure the pharmacy manager has designated an individual to be the Quality Improvement (QI) Coordinator (if the previous pharmacy manager was also the QI Coordinator)
