CHAPTER 1 - General Provisions
ARTICLE 10.7 - Opioid Medication
Section 742.


A prescriber who fails to offer a prescription, as required by paragraph (1) of subdivision (a) of Section 741, or fails to provide the education and use information required by paragraphs (2) and (3) of subdivision (a) of Section 741 shall be referred to the appropriate licensing board solely for the imposition of administrative sanctions deemed appropriate by that board. This section does not create a private right of action against a prescriber, and does not limit a prescriber’s liability for the negligent failure to diagnose or treat a patient.
