In the world of healthcare, ensuring the safety and well-being of patients is paramount. One of the key aspects of patient care involves pain management.
All front line staff, nurse managers, pharmacy managers, Human Resources, Risk/Quality, and administrative leadership need to understand the risk of diversion and how to prevent it, as well as know how to recognize signs of an impaired coworker and follow through with their obligation to respond and report.
Before a facility will embrace a culture of monitoring for diversion, education must be done so employees understand how prevalent diversion is and how widespread the consequences can be. Rxpert Solutions has many years of experience with education and can be a beneficial partner in this area.
Staff also need to understand proper medication use processes and medication safety goals. Medication safety is crucial to patient safety. Medication safety policies, if followed, tend to promote drug diversion prevention methods.
Rxpert Solutions will come onsite to educate on these topics or provide webinar education if preferred.
