New Hyde Park, NY, June 19, 2015 --(PR.com
While there are no reliable national estimates of the prevalence of drug diversion activity by U.S. healthcare personnel, diversion occurs in facilities across the US every day. Access to narcotics by clinical personnel represents an underappreciated occupational hazard and patient safety risk. Harm to patients from healthcare personnel who divert opioids may take many forms, including care delivered by an impaired provider, untreated pain, and infection risks stemming from tampering with injectable drugs. This webinar will outline fundamental components of a diversion prevention, detection, and response program. An overview of the scope of the problem will be provided, and safety and quality implications will be demonstrated by actual case studies. Regulatory, statutory and quality standards relating to controlled substance security and diversion will be detailed.

Diversion by healthcare personnel presents an underappreciated risk to patients and healthcare personnel. Diversion within healthcare facilities is a multi-victim crime that causes a significant risk of civil and regulatory liability and negative publicity to healthcare facilities. Facilities vary greatly in their approach to diversion by clinicians and other staff, but a formal program is essential to properly prevent, detect, and respond to diversion.
