Your Pharmacy Laws 3 Poster Set for Pharmacy Windows

Description

Set of three posters for pharmacy windows titled "Your Pharmacy Laws" printed in 1958. These "ethical displays" were designed and written by Frank Pinchak, a pharmacist from Paterson, New Jersey. Published by his company Professional Advancement Plan, Pinchak sold the posters to pharmacists around the country. He donated the posters to the American Institute of the History of Pharmacy in 2013. The main poster reads: "Your Pharmacy Laws - Although licensed by your state...your pharmacist practices his profession under local, state and federal laws. Local board of health, state pharmacy law, state food and drug laws, state narcotic laws, federal food and drug law, federal narcotic law." Side poster #1 reads: "Durham-Humphrey Amendment to the federal food, drug and cosmetic act...provides - that in most instances your physician must authorize the refilling of your prescription." Side poster #2 reads: "Your prescription must be kept on file for 5 years. Label must have number, date, physician's name, pharmacist's name and address and directions for use. Special records must be kept of all prescriptions filled. Narcotic prescriptions are kept on separate file."
