October 6, 2022

The Pharmacy Quality Assurance Commission (PQAC) issued a guidance document regarding prescription drug pick up lockers. Click here to access the full guidance document. According to the document, PQAC “interprets its laws and rules to permit pharmacies to use pharmacy-owned lockers to deliver filled prescriptions for noncontrolled drugs, without the lockers being included as part of the pharmacy’s license. Pharmacies should be aware of specific laws and rules that apply to the delivery of filled prescriptions for non-controlled drugs, including WAC 246-945-415(1), which requires pharmacies to take appropriate measures when delivering filled prescriptions to ensure product integrity and receipt by the patient or patient’s agent.” (David Streeter)
