The objective of the paper is to present the reflection process and the research carried out by the authors in order to create modern provisions for the pharmacy law, starting from the principle of respecting the ethics of patients’ rights within the pharmacy activity as key element in quality assurance. Official European documents and national healthcare laws were studied and provisions referring to patients’ rights were created. The result included proposals for the development of an ethical Romanian pharmacy oriented towards providing quality patient services. The proposals were submitted to the Chamber of Deputies, the co-financier of the research. However the Pharmacy Law does not include provisions regarding patients’ rights. In order to ensure that the ethics of patients’ rights is respected in the pharmacy activity, as part of the national policy of quality assurance in the health system, the pharmacy law must advocate patients’ rights in relation to this important health institution, at the same time specifying the means of monitoring that these rights are respected.
