Rxpert Solutions gives you access to a pharmacist with years of hospital pharmacy experience, an outside perspective, and a passion for finding practical and lasting solutions to improving medication safety.
A comprehensive program is multidisciplinary in nature. Controlled substance diversion monitoring is a component of medication safety and core essential for the facility. A pharmacist with an expertise in drug diversion will assist you in establishing a program of prevention, monitoring and responding from the ground up or adding to your existing program where gaps are identified.
A comprehensive on site review of your current processes for areas of risk. Risk must first be minimized then combined with a monitoring program. Rxpert Solutions will evaluate for risk along the entire medication pathway with the goal of improving security and accountability.
Federal and state laws address controlled substance monitoring and reporting of loss or theft. A regular auditing program needs to be in place at every facility. Rxpert Solutions can assist you in getting that audit program established, train staff who will be involved in the auditing process, and offer support in the event of a suspected diversion case. Finding those who are diverting requires a systematic approach. With time comes experience which is valuable as addicts can be quite ingenious. We offer support with the monitoring process based on your needs.
