Controlled substances that remain unopened after a completed surgical procedure need to be returned to the pharmacy. Similarly, opened but unused substances must be discarded. A quick test with DrugLog® will instantly verify a solution’s identity and concentration, thereby ensuring that it has not been tampered with. Using DrugLog® in your return procedure or waste disposal stream will thus help prevent attempts to divert controlled substances to illicit and inappropriate use.
