Attorney General Joseph A. Foster announces that the New Hampshire Board of Pharmacy ("Board") has suspended the license of pharmacist James T. Nixon, of Conway, New Hampshire, effective October 29, 2013.
The Board's action is in response information that Nixon was in a car accident in which numerous pills were discovered in his vehicle. Nixon subsequently admitted to law enforcement officers that for the last four to five months he had been diverting from the pharmacy at an Effingham Falls, New Hampshire rehabilitation facility where he was the pharmacist-in-charge multiple pills of controlled substances for his own personal use.
On October 29, 2013, the Board issued an Order of Emergency License Suspension and Notice of Hearing. The order immediately suspended Mr. Nixon's license to practice pharmacy in New Hampshire. A hearing before the Board is currently scheduled for 9:00 a.m. on November 6, 2013, for the purpose of determining whether the Board will continue the suspension of Mr. Nixon's license and/or impose permanent disciplinary sanctions.
