AN ESSENTIAL COMPONENT IN MODERN DRUG DIVERSION PREVENTION PROGRAMS
Drug diversion, the illegal displacement of prescription pharmaceuticals, is a rapidly growing issue. In particular, the theft of controlled substances from medical waste plays a key role in increasing the supply of illicit drugs in the streets. The integrated system WasteLog® provides a simple and effective way to monitor and safeguard discarded narcotics from surgical procedures.
REDUCES THE DISPLACEMENT RISK OF DISCARDED NARCOTICS WasteLog® is a new system that better manages the workflow that prevails when analyzing the returns of narcotic drugs within Drug Diversion Prevention program and is especially designed for the U.S. market. It is based on the DrugLog® technology, a robust and proven integrated solution for reducing errors in the drug administration process.
DISCOVER BROKEN MEDICATION CHAINS A key driver of drug diversion is the handling of medical waste, specifically unused narcotic drugs. 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 WasteLog® will instantly verify a solution’s identity and concentration, thereby ensuring that it has not been tampered with. Using WasteLog® in your return procedure or waste disposal stream will help prevent attempts to divert controlled substances to illicit and inappropriate use.
