Ga. Comp. R. & Regs. R. 480-37-.02 - Licensure

(a) In order to install or operate a RAMS, a Georgia licensed pharmacy must make application for licensure to the Board on a form approved by the Board, and pay a fee. No person other than an approved licensed pharmacy may install or operate a RAMS. Each location having a RAMS must have a separate license from the Board. If more than one licensed pharmacy operates a RAMS at the same skilled nursing facility or hospice, each licensed pharmacy must maintain a registration at the skilled nursing facility or hospice. A Georgia licensed pharmacy that has paid a fee for one RAMS location will be required to pay fees for the additional locations.
(b) Licenses are renewed for two years and expire on June 30th of each odd-numbered year. Renewals are contingent upon the renewal of the pharmacy facility license. If the application for renewal is not made and the fee paid before September 1st of the odd-numbered year, the license shall lapse, and an application for reinstatement shall be required. Reinstatement is at the sole discretion of the Board.
(c) A Georgia licensed pharmacy may only use the RAMS at a skilled nursing facility or hospice licensed as such pursuant to O.C.G.A. T. 31, Ch. 7, that does not have an on-site licensed pharmacy.
(d) The Pharmacist-in-Charge (PIC) for a licensed pharmacy shall be considered the PIC for each separate license to operate a RAMS at a skilled nursing facility or hospice.
(e) The RAMS must collect, control, and maintain all transaction information.
