Pharmacists perform an incredibly important function in our society, ensuring that people have access to the medications they need and providing information that ensures these medications are used safely and correctly.

With the help of our attorneys, you will be able to address any complaints and work to reach an outcome that will allow you to continue earning a living.

Grounds for Disciplinary Action By the IDFPR

Pharmacist's licenses are regulated by the Illinois Department of Financial & Professional Regulation (IDFPR), which follows the statutes defined in the Pharmacy Practice Act. This law specifies a number of grounds for discipline, including:

  • Monetary violations - Paying or receiving compensation for services which were not actually rendered, overcharging for services, or selling drug samples which were provided for free by drug manufacturers.
  • Improperly dispensing drugs - Dispensing prescription drugs without receiving a prescription or failing to dispense drugs, including controlled substances, in a lawful manner.
  • Failing an audit - A finding that a substantial discrepancy exists following an audit of prescription drugs, including controlled substances, by the IDFPR.
  • False reporting - Willfully filing false reports or records when practicing pharmacy.
  • Unprofessional conduct - Unethical acts that are likely to defraud or harm the public, or exhibiting a pattern of incompetence.
  • Alcohol or drug abuse - Excessive, habitual use of substances that impair the ability to practice as a pharmacist with reasonable judgment, skill, and safety.
  • Physical or mental illness - Health issues, including loss of motor skills or deterioration caused by aging, which result in an inability to practice as a pharmacist with reasonable judgment, skill, and safety.
