GENERAL PROVISIONS

      NAC 453.010  Definitions. (NRS 453.221, 453.256, 639.070)  As used in this chapter, unless the context otherwise requires:

     1.  “Board” means the State Board of Pharmacy.

     2.  “Emergency situation,” within the meaning of subsection 2 of NRS 453.256 and these regulations, means a situation in which a prescribing practitioner determines that:

     (a) Immediate administration of the controlled substance is necessary for the proper treatment of the patient;

     (b) No appropriate alternative treatment is available, including administration of a drug which is not a controlled substance under schedule II of the Uniform Controlled Substances Act; and

     (c) It is not reasonably possible for the prescribing practitioner to provide a written prescription to be presented to the person dispensing the substance before he or she dispenses it.

     [Bd. of Pharmacy, § 453.010, eff. 6-26-80]

      NAC 453.015  “Directions for use” interpreted. (NRS 453.221, 639.070)  As the term is used in NRS 453.385, 639.2353 and 639.2801 and NAC 453.410, the Board interprets “directions for use” to require a prescription or label to specify the dosage, frequency and manner in which the prescribed controlled substance is to be taken or applied, unless the dosage, frequency and manner in which the prescribed controlled substance is to be taken or applied are specifically described on or in the manufacturer’s individual packages or containers for the prescribed controlled substance. Use of the phrase “take as directed” or any phrase of similar import does not satisfy the requirements set forth in this section.

     (Added to NAC by Bd. of Pharmacy, eff. 9-29-87)

      NAC 453.020  “Facsimile machine” interpreted. (NRS 453.221, 453.256, 453.385, 639.070)  As used in NRS 453.256 and 453.385, the Board will interpret the term “facsimile machine” to include, without limitation, a computer that has a facsimile modem through which documents can be sent and received.

     (Added to NAC by Bd. of Pharmacy by R112-99, eff. 11-3-99)
