Lack of Texas State Board of Pharmacy Inspectors is Concerning

Compounding pharmacies are allowed to mix or combine several drugs under sterile conditions for the purpose of treating specific patients’ needs; however, recently the sterility of compounding pharmacies has been questioned.

Because these pharmacies are not closely regulated by the FDA, individual states are responsible for regulations. But due to budget cuts, states like Texas have decreased the overall number of inspections of pharmacies while the number of Texas pharmacies has increased to an estimated 6,300. However, not all of these pharmacies are compounding pharmacies.

Texas, like most states, does not require pharmacies to have a separate registration if they compound medicine. The state pharmacy board doesn’t exactly know the number of facilities that mix medicine, which is concerning to officials in Texas and may bring about a better tracking system in the future.

Because the number of pharmacies in Texas has increased by 1,200 over the last ten years, it would make sense that the number of Texas State Board of Pharmacy inspectors would increase as well. However, the number of inspectors has remained at six, which means that even if each inspector inspected two pharmacies per day, they still wouldn’t be able to meet their goal of inspecting every pharmacy every two years.

Because of budget cuts, Texans are left vulnerable to pharmacy errors, dangerous drugs, and sterility and contamination issues. If you have suffered harm due to a negligent Texas pharmacy or because there is a lack of oversight, you should speak with an experienced Texas pharmacy error attorney at Kennedy Hodges, L.L.P. at 888-526-7616 during a free consultation today.
