Ultimately, the doctor(s) is responsible for the medications dispensed. Medications given within the hospital/clinic are usually given by technicians/assistants, but sometimes may be administered by the doctor. Prescriptions which are sent home may be filled by just about any employee of the clinic -- doctor, tech/asst, receptionists, etc.
