    The National Provider Identifier (NPI) is a unique national identification number that is required for all healthcare providers. It is used to identify individual healthcare providers, including doctors, nurses, and other medical professionals, in order to facilitate accurate and secure electronic transactions in the healthcare industry. The NPI helps to ensure that patient information is properly managed and protected under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) regulations. The DEA number, on the other hand, is a unique identifier specifically for healthcare providers who prescribe controlled substances, while DAW refers to the Dispense as Written code.

It helps to ensure that only licensed professionals are prescribing these medications and helps to track and monitor the distribution of controlled substances. The DEA number is an important tool in preventing drug abuse and diversion.

    HIPPA is the correct answer because it is a federal act that protects the privacy of individuals and regulates the sharing of protected health information. The act sets standards for the security and confidentiality of patient information, ensuring that healthcare providers and organizations handle sensitive data appropriately. HIPPA also gives patients control over their health information and provides them with rights to access and amend their records. Overall, HIPPA aims to safeguard the privacy and security of personal health information and promote trust between patients and healthcare providers.

    • A.

      Signa sig

    • B.

      Rx

    • C.

    C. DAW
    Explanation
    The correct answer is DAW, which stands for Dispense as Written. DAW is a code that a prescriber can use on a prescription to indicate that the brand product must be dispensed instead of the generic equivalent. This may be necessary if the prescriber believes that the generic version may not be as effective for the patient or if the patient specifically requests the brand product. By using the DAW code, the prescriber ensures that the pharmacy will dispense the exact brand product that they have prescribed.

These drugs have a high potential for abuse and can lead to severe psychological or physical dependence.

Therefore, to ensure accessibility and ease of use for this age group, child-proof containers are not mandated for patients aged 65 and over.

    Based on the given prescription, it states "Glucophage XR 500mg, 2BID x 90 days." This means that the patient is prescribed to take 2 tablets of Glucophage XR 500mg twice a day for a duration of 90 days.

The term "DAW" stands for "dispense as written," which means that the prescriber specifically wants the brand name medication to be provided to the patient, rather than a generic alternative. This could be due to various reasons, such as the patient's preference, specific instructions from the prescriber, or insurance requirements.

    RX:  methotrexate 2.5mg tabs         ii/vi po q week #24" the days supply is

    • A.

      28 days

    • B.

      34 days

    • C.

      42 days

    • D.

      90 days

    Correct Answer
    A. 28 days
    Explanation
    The correct answer is 28 days. The prescription indicates that the patient should take methotrexate 2.5mg tablets orally, twice a week, for a total of 24 weeks. Since there are 7 days in a week, the patient will need 2 tablets per week. Therefore, the number of tablets needed for 24 weeks is 2 tablets/week x 24 weeks = 48 tablets. Since the prescription specifies a 2.5mg strength tablet, and there are 28 tablets in a standard pack, the days supply is calculated as 48 tablets / 2.5 tablets per day = 19.2 days, which is rounded up to 28 days.

      30

    • C.

      45

    • D.

      60

    Correct Answer
    D. 60
    Explanation
    The prescription is for prednisone 5mg tablets to be taken at different dosages over a period of 10 days. The instructions indicate that the patient should take 5 tablets per day for the first 2 days, then decrease the dosage by 1 tablet every 2 days until the final 2 days when they take 1 tablet per day. To calculate the total number of tablets needed, we add up the number of tablets for each dosage: 5 tablets x 2 days + 4 tablets x 2 days + 3 tablets x 2 days + 2 tablets x 2 days + 1 tablet x 2 days = 60 tablets. Therefore, the correct answer is 60.

    Rx:  ProAir HFA #1,        Sig: ii/ll puff q 6prn there are 200 doses in one inhaler,  the day's suppply would be

    • A.

      600 ml

    • B.

      1000 ml

    • C.

      1800 ml

    • D.

      2000 ml

    Correct Answer
    C. 1800 ml
    Explanation
    The prescription states "Sig: ii/ll puff q 6prn" which means to take 2 puffs every 6 hours as needed. The inhaler contains 200 doses. To calculate the day's supply, we need to determine how many doses will be used in a day. If we take 2 puffs every 6 hours, that means we will take 4 puffs in a 12-hour period. Therefore, the inhaler will last for 50 days (200 doses / 4 doses per day). Since each puff delivers 90 ml of medication, the day's supply would be 4 puffs x 90 ml = 360 ml. Therefore, the given answer of 1800 ml is incorrect.

    In an institutional setting, medication orders may be administered by nursing staff.

It is important for the nursing staff to follow these orders accurately and ensure that the patients receive the correct medication at the right time. This responsibility helps in ensuring the safety and well-being of the patients in the institutional setting.

    All of the following are examples of PHI except the

    • A.

      Patient's insurance indentification number

    • B.

      Patient's address

    • C.

      Pharmacy address

    • D.

      Patient's date of birth

    Correct Answer
    C. Pharmacy address
    Explanation
    The pharmacy address is not considered Protected Health Information (PHI) because it does not directly identify the patient or contain any personal health information. PHI includes sensitive data such as the patient's insurance identification number, address, and date of birth, which can be used to identify an individual and potentially compromise their privacy. However, the pharmacy address is not linked to an individual's health information and therefore does not fall under the category of PHI.

      The pharmacist

    • B.

      The pharmacy technician

    • C.

      Custodial personnel

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    D. None of the above
    Explanation
    All of the listed pharmacy personnel, including the pharmacist and the pharmacy technician, must be formally trained regarding HIPAA. This is because HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) is a federal law that protects the privacy and security of patients' health information. It is essential for all pharmacy personnel to understand and comply with HIPAA regulations to ensure the confidentiality of patient information. Custodial personnel, on the other hand, may not have access to patients' health information and may not require formal training regarding HIPAA. Therefore, the correct answer is "none of the above."
