Pharmacist accused of unprofessional conduct
Pharmacists was alleged to have committed unprofessional conduct in that she allowed pharmacy technician to administer flu shots without training or certification. In this matter, I did my own investigation and was able to ascertain that the culpability for the flu shots lied with the pharmacist in charge and not my client. I met with the Pharmacy Board, the pharmacist in charge of another pharmacy technician at the Department. As a result, the pharmacist in charge and the pharmacy technician were offered a discipline but not my client.
Pharmacist denial of application due to sister state discipline
A Pharmacist client of mine applied for a pharmacy license in 2013 and was denied because she had a previous suspension and subsequent probation in the state of Florida. Her Florida discipline was for conspiring with the store manager to aid with procuring hydrocodone without a valid prescription. My firm requested a hearing and after appearing in front of the pharmacy licensing board I was able to obtain the license for my client with no discipline or restrictions.
A Writ of Mandamus and Mandatory Injunction against the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation for wrongfully putting a Pharmacist Discipline on its webside
In this matter, the pharmacist was licensed practice in the State of Michigan. The pharmacist's license had been suspended in the State of Michigan and subsequently reinstated with the help of my firm. Thereafter, the Plaintiff applied for a license as a pharmacist in the State of Illinois. On April 13, 2010 the IDFPR issued an order adopting the facts, conclusions of law and recommendation to the Director by the Board of Pharmacy, which has adopted the Findings of Fact contained in the Report and Recommendation Of the Administrative Law Judge, wherein Plaintiff's application in the State of Illinois was denied. Subsequently, the pharmacist was able to remove his Michigan restrictions and was granted an Illinois license without restriction. Without consent by the pharmacist, the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulations designated on it's own website that the pharmacist had been disciplined. My firm filed a Verified Complaint for Writ of Mandamus and in the Alternative, Mandatory Injunction in Chancery Court to compel the Director of IDFPR to remove the disciplinary action form the website. The action was granted and the pharmacist remain clear and unrestricted.
