Drug diversion cameras: implementing, maintaining, and expanding

Medication chain of custody tracking is challenging in health care with many moving parts. Controlled substances are received into a hospital, then distributed to multiple areas in a hospital, and sometimes even compounded to make new medications.

Cameras are worth the investment and are becoming the norm in healthcare facilities. A drug diversion prevention manager needs to be able to monitor drugs until it is administered, wasted, or reverse-distributed.

Cameras help provide an accurate chain of custody monitoring; they can give oversight into the preparation/compounding processes, monitor drugs in high-risk areas such as operating rooms, and even help prove staff innocent of diversion when a clerical error has occurred. Cameras help provide another tool to a drug diversion prevention manager that saves time and money. They help protect patients from harm that may occur from diversion.
