When it comes to drug diversion, veterinarians are just as at risk (if not more) than the human side of healthcare.
How do I run an efficient practice and keep up with complex DEA requirements?
It’s a question many veterinary practitioners wrestle with. Many other vets simply believe, “It can’t happen to me.” Neither is the best risk-mitigation strategy. The fact is, many veterinary practices would fail a federal or state controlled-substance regulatory inspection if it happened today.
It was long thought that the risk for drug diversion in veterinary practices was minimal. But with the opioid crisis still raging, practices stocked with popular controlled substances like Fentanyl, Hydromorphone, Hydrocodone and Tramadol, have become a target-rich environment for addicts. On top of that, the DEA has expanded its monitoring capabilities using sophisticated data analytic tools to identify unusual ordering activity. This has led to more unannounced visits and tougher oversight than ever before.
