The Nontraditional Pharmacist Podcast co-host and infrastructure technology business development executive for UCG Technologies Matt Paterini PharmD talks with Pharmacy Podcast Network founder Todd S. Eury about the facinating demographics of Millennials. 

More than one-in-three American labor force participants (35%) are Millennials, making them the largest generation in the U.S. labor force, according to a Pew Research Center analysis of U.S. Census Bureau data. As of 2017 – the most recent year for which data are available – 56 million Millennials (those ages 21 to 36 in 2017) were working or looking for work.

That was more than the 53 million Generation Xers, who accounted for a third of the labor force. And it was well ahead of the 41 million Baby Boomers, who represented a quarter of the total.

Millennials surpassed Gen Xers in 2016. Meanwhile, the oldest members of the post-Millennial generation (those born after 1996) are now of working age. Last year, 9 million post-Millennials (those who have reached working age, 16 to 20) were employed or looking for work, comprising 5% of the labor force. These labor force estimates are based on the Current Population Survey, which is designed by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics and serves as the basis for its unemployment and labor force statistics.

Being a Millennial X means working hard, smarter, and being innovative in your work. Being a Millennial X -- means CRUSHING IT!!

DEA Documentation Requirements 

Special Guest: Carlos Aquino from PharmaDiversion LLC™

In early 2017, we saw DEA changing their focus on pharmacy compliance. DEA increased their enforcement from the verification of the Combat Methamphetamine Certificate to a more formal on-site inspection. Now with the emphasis on the opioid epidemic, DEA is under increase pressure to look for abusers of the system. Naturally, the first place any inspector will start is the pharmacy. We have been spending more time updating our clients on this trend and providing as much information as we can find. Then I attended a conference last September and one of the presentations was on “Maintaining Your Pharmacy in DEA Compliance”.

Carlos Aquino is the President of PharmaDiversion and he is based out of Philadelphia. Carlos is a retired DEA diversion investigator and a great supporter of independent pharmacies. If you ever have an issue with the DEA, Carlos is the first person you should call. 

  1. CSOS user names and passwords
  2. Power of Attorneys for DEA forms 222 and Electronic Orders
  3. Receiving C-II orders from the wholesaler and completing the DEA documentation

First, every person who uses the CSOS system must have their own user name and password. No person may share another person’s user name. Having a single user name for a pharmacy only works if the user never takes a day off, ever; and we know that won’t happen occur so you are opening yourself for criticism with the DEA as soon as they start asking questions.

Setting up additional user names is not hard, you work with your wholesaler software system to establish a new user name. Each system has their own variation and perimeters, so if you have questions, go to their IT department.

When the drug order is received: a. CSOS is accessed by an authorized individual with a Power of Attorney for DEA Forms 222 and Electronic Orders with an individual user name and password that is not shared with another person b. The order of Controlled Substances is checked against the packing slip/invoice c. DEA 222 is completed through CSOS d. Print the DEA 222.

Most systems will state on the document, “This is not a DEA issued Form 222. This form is available for convenience.”  If this document does not print, check your Pop-up Blocker  The Pop-up Blocker may also prevent a completed DEA 222 from being printed (Carlos picks up)

• This document acts as the DEA 222 for DEA on-site inspection purposes

• In most cases, this document prints with the fields empty. Manually complete this document by entering the following information:

o Packages Received

o Date Received

o DEA requires the persons initials:  Remember this person must have a Power of Attorney  Recommend a signature over an initial e. Attach the packing slip/invoice to the acting DEA 222 f. Keep on file for two (2) years:

• DEA requires the pharmacy to produce the completed DEA 222 and invoice upon demand o DEA regulations require you to have this record to be “readily retrievable” and separate from other records o Reference: DEA Pharmacist’s Manual, Section VI – Record Keeping o You cannot print and complete the document when a DEA inspector is on-site.

Carlos, I have been working with other organizations on the opioid crisis, this process is straight forward, but as Jeff stated at the beginning, DEA is enforcing the documentation requirements. Can you give us specific examples of pharmacy who have recently received DEA fines or you are aware of the DEA fines.

  • Example 1: CSOS user names and passwords
  • Example 2: Power of Attorneys for DEA forms 222 and Electronic Orders
  • Example 3: Receiving C-II orders from the wholesaler and completing the DEA documentation If time permits, one more example
