Puskesmas is a first-level healthcare service facility that organizes health efforts prioritized promotive and
preventive actions. In executing its health efforts, puskesmas must take actions according to standards,
including in pharmaceutical services. It will be different when the pharmacy service is provided by nurses
instead of provided by pharmacy staffs. Following the prevailing law in Indonesia today, nurses’ authority in
carrying out their pharmacy duties in practice is only limited. To provide assurance and legal protection for
nurses in performing pharmaceutical services in health centres where there are no pharmacists/pharmaceutical
technical staff, laws and regulations related to nursing protection have an essential function. It also protects
nurses to avoid criminalization of nurses by law enforcement officials.
