Diversion of drugs by healthcare workers poses a considerable challenge for hospitals. Diversion can lead to significant financial loss and potentially impact patients and staff. In addition, accrediting and regulating agencies require pharmacy departments to maintain the accountability, security and control of controlled substances, and identify any movement or diversion of drugs in a timely manner. Failure to do so can result in significant accreditation issues and even fines.
Debby Riffel RN, MS, Sr. Clinical Sales consultant for Pyxis® technologies, shares how vigilance from pharmacy and nursing can lead to the implementation of effective processes and monitoring systems to detect and intervene into potential problem areas.
- Discuss the impact of controlled substance diversion in the hospital setting
- Identify primary methods of diversion in the pharmacy and on nursing units
