What is the main purpose of and how many members are on each State Board of Pharmacy?

The short answer is:  It depends on the state. Although the standards for state pharmacy boards are slightly different from state to state, they are each made up of a mix of active pharmacists and consumers.

The Oregon State Board of Pharmacy consists of seven members. Within this state, the Governor appoints each member to the board for a four-year term, so long as he is approved by the state senate. The board is made up of five licensed pharmacists and two members of the public.

The Georgia State Board of Pharmacy consists of eight members, also appointed by the governor. This board is made up of seven licensed practicing pharmacists and one consumer.

In Texas, the board consists of nine members who are also appointed by the governor and approved by the senate, but their terms are for six years. Six of the members have to be registered pharmacists in Texas, with three members representing the public.

There are 13 members on the California State Board of Pharmacy, with seven registered pharmacists and four members of the public who are all appointed to four-year terms by the governor. Additionally, the Senate Rules Committee and the Speaker of the Assembly also appoint one public member.

Although there are different numbers of board members from state to state, they all are charged with regulating the practice of pharmacy in their states and investigating complaints. Some boards meet quarterly and others meet once a month to discuss and review complaints and determine if disciplinary actions should be taken.

If you are a victim of a pharmacy error, you should report the incident to your state pharmacy board, and you should contact Kennedy Hodges to speak with a knowledgeable pharmacy error attorney today at 888-526-7616.
