NAMPA The Idaho Board of Pharmacy will not take action against a
Nampa pharmacist who refused to fill a prescription ordered by a
Planned Parenthood nurse.

In a letter issued Thursday, Executive Director Mark Johnston wrote
that the board had concluded its investigation into the incident and
found no violations of state laws the board is tasked with enforcing.

In a complaint to the board, Planned Parenthood officials said the
Nampa Walgreens pharmacist improperly used the states conscience law
to refuse to fill a prescription for Methergine, a medicine used to
prevent or control bleeding of the uterus following childbirth or an
***.

But according to the Board of Pharmacys response, the Idaho Pharmacy
Act does not require a pharmacist to fill a prescription. Even if the
conscience law was used incorrectly, the pharmacist did not violate
the Idaho Pharmacy Act by refusing to fill the prescription, the board
found.

In response to Planned Parenthoods assertion that denying the
prescription could have placed the patient in grave danger, the board
said no such danger was realized because the medicine was obtained
elsewhere.

Were disappointed. Were not surprised, Kristen Glundberg-Prossor,
spokeswoman for Planned Parenthood of the Great Northwest, said
Monday. This decision confirms that, in Idaho, a pharmacist has no
duty to fill any prescription for any reason. Right now, there is no
protection under Idaho law for patients to receive treatment if a
pharmacist refuses to provide it.

She said Planned Parenthood will push for changes to or repeal of the
conscience law at the legislative level.

If these refusals keep happening for whatever reason, people are not
going to get the health care they deserve, she said.

Planned Parenthood officials had also complained that the pharmacist
inquired if the patient needed the drug for post-*** care. The
nurse refused to answer the question based on confidentiality of
health information.

According to the Board of Pharmacys response, Planned Parenthood
alleged the pharmacists inquiry violated privacy provisions of the
federal Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, which the
board is not entitled to enforce. Under the Idaho Pharmacy Act,
releasing such information would be a violation, but requesting it is
not, the response states.
