Unnecessary Regulation

As a nurse of 30 years, I am a strong advocate to remove delays in patient care that come from unnecessary red tape.  I had many patients on scheduled medications and programs like the PMP are more effective in monitoring safe prescriptive patterns.  My patients have spinal cord injuries and it takes a lot of effort for them or their care takers to go to a pharmacy to pick up medications. Many of them have had to wait HOURS which is an inconvenience that could be righted be removing this regulation.
