Petition for Rulemaking

As a Pharmacy Technician,  I feel that having the nurses sign for our narcotics is something that is not necessary. The nurses are busy taking care of patients, and patient care is much more important.  Our narcotics are checked by a pharmacist before we deliver and we have to deliver into our acudose. I feel there is enough paper trail and computer trail that if a narcotic is not placed it will be caught with the next acudose transaction for that drug. I feel with this change we as technicians and the nurses can be much more efficient in our jobs.
