As the leader in healthcare waste management, Stericycle can help you reduce the risk of diversion with our controlled substance waste program: CsRx.
Disposing of controlled substances needs to be done safely to reduce your risk as a business. Our extensive expertise offers regulatory compliance solutions that help you comply with local, state, and federal regulations as well as industry guidance and professional association standards. Depending on your industry and the services you provide, you may be legally compelled to comply with US federal regulations monitored by:
Hospitals and Non-Acute Care Facilities
Skilled Nursing Facility/Assisted Living Facilities/Retail Pharmacies
Disposing of controlled substance waste can be problematic for both consumers and the healthcare industry. It must be performed in a manner that both prevents diversion of controlled substances and also meets DEA regulations.
The DEA regulations can be confusing and, if controlled substances disposal is not handled correctly, the risk of fines and other DEA corrective action can come into play. Stericycle has safe and secure methods for retail pharmacies and hospitals to securely dispose of controlled substance waste in a compliant manner.
It is well documented that misuse of controlled substances by patients and healthcare workers has led to a greater awareness of how these substances can be diverted. That is why choosing a method for disposal that is both DEA compliant and also prevents diversion is paramount.
