Question:

Which of these is always true regarding Schedule II controlled substances?

A The pharmacist in charge must verify and document the date received on all received CII medications.
Explaination

CII medications can be ordered with a hand-written DEA 222 form or through the Controlled Substance Ordering System (CSOS). When using an electronic system to order, the DEA 222 form is not required. The pharmacist who is registered with the FDA (the pharmacist in charge) must sign and date all records for CII drugs. Controlled substances may be returned to the supplier. To destroy the medications, the pharmacy or distributor must fill out a DEA 41 form with all appropriate information about the destruction.
