Controlled Drug Diversion Risk Assessment
A comprehensive on-site review of your current processes is necessary to identify areas of risk. A comprehensive drug diversion prevention and monitoring program must look for ways to improve controlled substance security, thereby minimizing the avenues for diversion.
Solutions will evaluate for risk along the entire medication pathway with the goal of improving security, safety and accountability. This includes confirming that solid policies and procedures are in place, policies are being followed, there are checks and balances, and unaccounted for (missing) controlled substances are identified and
investigated timely. Our experts are available to discuss these matters with you as well as help you with P&P to minimize risks associated with these class of drugs.
Observation of workflow is an essential component to understanding where gaps may exist. Staff have expectations for performance, but when was the last time someone observed to see if they are meeting those expectations and following best practice? Poor practice and diversion can often look alike. A risk assessment will
bring poor practices to the surface and highlight where work is needed to bring staff into compliance. Improving practice will ultimately make diversion easier to spot.
While monitoring healthcare workers who may be diverting controlled substances is important, this gap analysis will give a facility a great overview where improvements in prevention are needed. We can help you with creating a solid process to meet state and Federal regulations to stay compliant and eliminate diversion.
