Educating medical staff in various healthcare facilities and settings is critical for FDA medication disposal compliance. All too often, healthcare workers are not trained on the proper procedures for disposing of pharmaceuticals and simply throw leftover medications in the trash or are told to flush down a drain. There are many regulations which govern the disposal of unused drugs, however, and facilities could very well be non-compliant to these regulations without a robust drug disposal program in place.
The most important reasons for compliance to drug disposal regulations are to prevent drug diversion, the usage of controlled substances by people the medication was not prescribed for and contamination of the environment when pharmaceuticals leach into soil and groundwater. Drug diversion is part of an epidemic in the United States with too many people dying of a drug overdose and costing millions of dollars in economic burden due to treatment and legal proceedings. Pharmaceuticals in our water supply is another harmful result of improper disposal of pharmaceuticals.
It does not have to be difficult to begin a comprehensive drug disposal system that is compliant to DEA, EPA and FDA regulations.
