Drenic-Stojanovic, Drena (Dec 30, 2020)

Nature of Action: Pursuant to section 35(1)(a) of the Health Professions Act, R.S.B.C. 1996, c. 183 (“HPA”), effective December 30, 2020, the Inquiry Committee of the College of Pharmacists of British Columbia (the “College”) has made an order to impose limits and conditions on the pharmacy practice of the registrant Drena Drenic-Stojanovic (the “Registrant”) during the investigation into the Registrant’s practice, as follows:

  1. The Registrant shall not be involved in any way in the preparation, compounding, manipulation and/or dispensing of injectable and/or sterile products to patients/clients or health care providers/prescribers for office use;
  2. The Registrant shall not act as a pharmacy manager or owner;
  3. The Registrant shall not act as a preceptor to students or be responsible for the supervision of other staff and/or registrants;
  4. The Registrant must work under the direct supervision of another registrant acceptable to College staff; and
  5. The Registrant must inform any employer of these limits and conditions of her practice and provide it with a copy of this decision.

The Inquiry Committee considered this action necessary to protect the public.

Reasons: While practising as a pharmacist, it is alleged that the Registrant did not comply with the applicable legislation and standards of practice required to compound sterile preparations. While practising as a pharmacist, it is alleged that the Registrant distributed compounded sterile preparations from an unlicensed pharmacy.

Note: Limits and conditions ordered by the Inquiry Committee under section 35(1)(a) of the HPA are made to protect the public during an investigation or pending a hearing of the Discipline Committee. Orders made under this section relate to matters which are and remain unproven unless admitted by a registrant or determined by the Discipline Committee.
