Everyone knows diversion is a major challenge in today’s health care environment, but not everyone knows how to confidently detect, manage, and prevent diversion incidents. Omnicell is proud to continue its webinar series on Diversion Management with diversion expert Kimberly New.
Do you know how to effectively manage medication processes to meet regulations related to drug diversion? We wrap up the 2015 webinar series by taking a look at medication security guidelines that are highly recommended to prevent drug diversion in your facility.
In this webinar, the following topics will be discussed:
Best practices for medication security processes to prevent diversion of controlled substances.
Consequences of drug diversion including the spread of infectious diseases, deaths, and fines charged by the DEA.
Past drug diversion activity at facilities that lacked processes to monitor diversion.
