Emergency prescriptions.

In an emergency, unless prohibited by the order of the disciplinary authority, a practitioner participating in this program may orally prescribe and a pharmacist may dispense a drug specified by the disciplinary authority to be included in the triplicate prescription program. For the purposes of this rule, "emergency" means that the immediate provision of the drug is necessary for proper treatment, that no alternative treatment is available and it is not possible for the practitioner to provide a written prescription for the drug. If such a drug is orally prescribed, the practitioner shall:
(1) Contemporaneously reduce the prescription to writing;
(2) Cause the original of the written prescription to be delivered to the pharmacy filling the prescription within 72 hours; and,
(3) Retain and transmit copies of the prescription as provided in WAC 246-800-130.
