In Randol Mill Pharmacy v. Miller,No. 13-1014 (Tex. Apr. 24, 2015), plaintiff sued a pharmacy and several of its licensed pharmacist-employees for injury she suffered after taking a drug that defendants had compounded.  Taking the position that her claims against these defendants were not subject to the requirements of the Texas Medical Liability Act, plaintiff failed to serve those defendants with an expert report as required by the Act within 120 days of filing suit.  Defendant moved to dismiss the claims under the Act.  The trial court denied that motion and the appellate court affirmed.  On review, the Texas Supreme Court held that the Texas Medical Liability Act was enacted to provide a comprehensive statutory framework concerning healthcare liability claims.  After a careful review of the statutory language, the court ruled that pharmacists acting in the capacity of compounding drugs are “healthcare providers” and that the plaintiff’s claims against these defendants in relation to that conduct are “healthcare liability claims” under the Act.  As a consequence, the court ordered plaintiff’s case dismissed for failure to comply with the Act’s requirement of providing defendants with an expert report within 120 days of filing suit.
