ALJX 1. The Show Cause Order proposed the revocation of Respondent’s registration pursuant to 21 U.S.C. 824(a)(4) and 823(f) on the ground that Respondent’s registration is inconsistent with the public interest. ALJX 1, at 1. For the same reason, the Show Cause Order also proposed the denial of any pending application by Respondent for renewal or modification of its registration, and the denial of any application by Respondent for any other DEA registration. Id. (citing 21 U.S.C. 823(f)). As the jurisdictional basis for the proceeding, the Show Cause Order alleged that Respondent’s DEA Certification of Registration No. FP1049546 authorized it to dispense controlled substances in schedules II through V as a retail pharmacy at the registered location of 205 E. Hallandale Beach Blvd., Hallandale Beach, Florida 33009. Id. Respondent’s registration was to expire on March 31, 2017. Id. As the substantive grounds for the proceeding, the Show Cause Order PO 00000 Frm 00054 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 contained seven categories of violations. First, it alleged that ‘‘Zion dispensed controlled substances where it knew, or should have known, that the prescriptions were not issued in the usual course of professional practice or for a legitimate medical purpose and therefore failed to exercise its corresponding responsibility regarding the proper prescribing and dispensing of controlled substances.’’ Id. (citing 21 CFR 1306.04(a)). The Show Cause Order stated that Respondent’s failure to exercise its corresponding responsibility was evidenced by its ‘‘dispensing of controlled substances despite the presence of red flags of diversion that Zion failed to clear prior to dispensing the drugs.’’ Id. at 1–2. The Show Cause Order listed seven red flags of diversion that Respondent allegedly did not resolve prior to filling prescriptions. Id. at 2–7. It cited Holiday CVS, L.L.C., d/b/a CVS/Pharmacy Nos. 219 and 5195, 77 FR 62,316 (2012) (hereinafter, Holiday CVS) as support for these allegations. The Show Cause Order listed 13 prescriptions, for customers who allegedly traveled long round-trip distances of approximately 166 to 661 miles from home to physician to Respondent and back home, and alleged that Respondent filled them without having resolved the long distance red flags of diversion. ALJX 1, at 2–3. Each of the 13 prescription examples was for a controlled substance written some time during the period of February 2012 through January 2013. Id.; see also Government Exhibit (hereinafter, GX) 8/ 8a. The Show Cause Order cited five prescriptions written by the same doctor on June 27, 2012 for five different customers for ‘‘1 ML Testosterone Cypionate 210mg/mL IM,’’ a controlled substance, that Respondent allegedly filled without first having resolved the red flags of diversion. ALJX 1, at 3–4; see also GX 10. The Show Cause Order referenced two prescriptions for Dilaudid 8 mg., a controlled substance, written by the same doctor on June 22, 2012 for two individuals with the same last name and the exact same street address that Respondent allegedly filled without first having resolved the red flags of diversion. ALJX 1, at 4; see also GX 11. The Show Cause Order alleged that Respondent filled the two prescriptions on July 13, 2012 at 2:35 p.m. and 2:39 p.m., respectively. ALJX 1, at 4. The Order to Show Cause alleged that Respondent filled two prescriptions for the same customer on the same day for the same immediate release controlled substance, but for different strengths, E:\FR\FM\13MRN1.SGM 13MRN1
