Mom is in a 6 person Board and Care. They are very clean and thorough. OTC and regular meds for each guest are placed in a separate plastic container and everything is labeled. OTC items are labeled as shown on the Dr. report authorizing the med, or on a Dr. RX pad, signed by the Dr. but showing OTC.
The facility has let me know that when they were inspected last week they were dinged because the OTC items didn't have a regular RX label, the same as RX drugs do. So, now, instead of me buying, for example, Tylenol, at a store, I need to have it run through a pharmacy.
Has this happened to anyone else? Do you know whether it is a new rule? If so, where can I find more details? It is really complicating things.
Thanks for the help. Again, I'm asking only for California.
