Section 3100.400 Requirement of Prescription

b) An individual practitioner may administer or dispense directly a controlled substance listed in Schedule II in the course of his professional practice subject to the Act and this Part.
c) An institutional practitioner may administer or dispense directly (but not prescribe) a controlled substance listed in Schedule II only pursuant to a written prescription signed by the prescribing individual practitioner or to an order for medication made by an individual practitioner which is dispensed for immediate administration to the ultimate user.
d) In an emergency situation, as defined by subsection (e), below, a pharmacist, in accordance with requirements in Section 1306.11(d) of Title 21 of the Code of Federal Regulations and Paragraph 1309 of the Act, may fill a Schedule II prescription which is oral or written on a form other than a triplicate prescription blank.
e) For the purposes of authorizing an oral prescription of a controlled substance listed in Schedule II of the Act, the term "emergency situation" means those situations in which the prescribing practitioner determines:
1) That immediate administration of the controlled substance is necessary for proper treatment of the intended ultimate user; and
2) That no appropriate alternative treatment is available, including administration of a drug which is not a controlled substance under Schedule II of the Act; and
3) That it is not reasonably possible for the prescribing practitioner to provide a written prescription to be presented to the person dispensing the substance, prior to the dispensing.
