Lost, stolen or forged prescription pads: know what to do

Registrants are being reminded to take precautions to prevent theft or forgery of prescription pads, and to follow these steps if a pad is stolen and to mitigate future problems.
  1. Obtain folio numbers by calling the College.

  2. Provide the folio numbers to the Ministry of Health so that a pharmacy FanOut may be started.

  3. Call the Office of the Information and Privacy Commissioner if patient-specific information has been lost.

  4. Call the Canadian Medical Protective Association with any other concerns or questions.

  5. Call local law enforcement if warranted.

Registrants who wish to see a copy of their prescribing profile to check prescriptions filled under their name can submit a written request to drugprograms@cpsbc.ca.
