Checking a new employee’s identification and College registration status is a requirement. This applies to all pharmacists and pharmacy technicians.
Professional Practice Policy 73- Validate Identification and College Registration Status for New Pharmacy Hires outlines verifying identification of new employees. It is a fast and easy step that protects you, your coworkers, your pharmacy and most importantly, your patients.
Be sure to follow these three steps every time a new hire is made:
- Confirm Applicant Identification
- Confirm Registration Status with the College of Pharmacists of BC
- Confirm that the College Registration Number Provided by the Pharmacist Matches the Registration Number on PharmaNet
The Board also strongly recommends that PPP-73 is applied to existing pharmacist and pharmacy technician staff. For more information on this Board decision, please review the June 20, 2014 Board Highlights.
