I was going to say the same thing. Violation of professional boundaries, which usually consists of trading drugs for sex, can and will get a license yanked as well. So will commission of a felony in some states - any felony.The vast majority of pharmacists never lose their licenses. The few who do, usually get their licenses back if they are willing to jump through the hoops (drug treatment, drug testing, etc.....which in my experience has been the #1 reason I've seen pharmacists get their licenses suspended or put on probation, drug addiction/abuse) Probably the 2nd most likely reason pharmacists lose their license is because of some kind of fraud, especially with Medicare/Medicaid.
There is the case in Ohio where the hospital pharmacist had his licensed revoked because a technician mixed the IV wrong leading to the death of a child--but this was an unusually rare case.
It doesn't happen often. If the board comes down on someone for a med error, they usually request that the person pay a fine and do some extra CEs.How many people got their licenses revoked for critical dispensing errors besides Eric Cropp due to the IV error? Just wondering.
He should never get out of prison for that, period!The last person in Wisconsin who lost their license with no opportunity for the suspension to be waived, stole drugs from his pharmacy and used it to kill his wife. The most common reason for license issues has to do with drug addiction.
