Subject to modification by the VTH Director without approval.


To provide the expectation of which dispensary policies need to comply with pharmacy law, this applies to all operations of the VTH dispensary.  As a general rule, VTH dispensary policies should be in line with IL pharmacy regulations. If a deviation occurs, it must be agreed upon by the pharmacy coordinator and hospital director and the rationale documented for why following pharmacy regulations do not make sense in that particular instance.


  • In most cases, dispensary policies are expected to follow IL pharmacy regulations.
  • Deviations from IL pharmacy regulations must be agreed upon by the hospital director and pharmacy coordinator and the rationale documented.
