Seminar #100: Controlled Substance Record Keeping and Security Responsibilities
A Seminar for Nurses, Pharmacists, Hospital Administrators, Attorneys, Security Officers, Veterinarians and other Health Care Institution personnel.
It has been our experience that a certain percentage of health care professionals who have access to controlled substances abuse them. These individuals include health care practitioners who have access to drugs such as Percocet, Morphine, Dilaudid, Demerol, Fentanyl and other highly addictive drugs. We consider drug addiction an occupational hazard among health care professionals.
Health care professionals cannot consistently divert drugs if an institution has adequate physical security and an effective record keeping system with a comprehensive audit trail. Most health care professionals are unaware of the magnitude of the legal hazard associated with failing to provide adequate security and maintain complete and accurate controlled substance records.
This program will exam federal and state laws surrounding controlled substance record keeping, security and accountability. Common controlled substance record keeping and security problems will be examined as well as the methods used to tighten controls in these areas.
Drug diversion will be discussed in detail including the related exposure to the health care institution for the failure to maintain proper controlled substance security, record keeping and accountability.
