Feedback for Proposed Revisions to By-law No 3 — Fees & Public Register

MICs Group of Health Services  ·  Nov. 20, 2015

The proposed position of fees for accreditation of hospital pharmacies seems excessively high, especially for small hospitals. I am writing on behalf of a group of 3 small hospitals. Our hospitals share one pharmacy department to minimize cost. I would advocate for prorating fees based on size and complexity of services offered. The presence of a pharmacy in the hospital should also be taken into consideration. Two of our hospitals do not have physical pharmacies, but yet will be expected to pay the same fee as large teaching hospitals. The proposed fee alone represents over 7% of the annual pharmacy budget for two of our hospitals, which as you can imagine, puts additional pressure on our resources. Thank you for your consideration in this matter.
