Hospitals and healthcare facilities across the country face drug diversion issues on a regular basis. These issues require sensible and organized plans on how to deal with the problem before it surfaces at your institution, and how to successfully deal with it when it does. Hospitals are often unaware of the types and methods of pharmaceutical diversion that are taking place in their institution, sometimes on a daily basis.
When drugs are being diverted by healthcare professionals, the care, comfort, and even lives of their patients can be jeopardized. Seldom do these drugs reach the street for sale. Instead, healthcare professionals actually use these drugs while working in the facility. In addition to the patient care issues, it creates enormous potential legal liability for the facility. PDE Inc. feels that the drug diversion issues in hospitals should be a top priority of any institution. Developing the best measures to prevent it from happening in the first place is paramount. When, not if, drug diversion surfaces at your facility, effectively dealing with involved employees, while safeguarding your patients should be your first priority to provide a successful outcome.
Pharmaceutical Diversion Education Inc. will provide you with a comprehensive review of all aspects of your health facility’s status when it comes to pharmaceutical diversion issues. Formal education sessions will also be provided, along with a detailed written final report, and an open door for possible follow up questions for you and your staff.
