Non-Prescription Drugs


Non prescription drugs (over the counter drugs) which are in the manufacturers' original container may be given to the patient by nursing personnel as long as no additional direction labels are being attached to the container. If a label that includes any special directions/instructions needs to be attached to the manufacturer's/distributor's package, the non-prescription drug product must be dispensed by a physician, nurse practitioner, dentist (for his or her dental patients) or pharmacist.
