I came across a situation in a hospital set up where the hospital and its retail pharmacy were finding difficulty in accounting for the huge stocks of drugs that have been accumulating due to:left over drugs due to change in the prescription, death of the patient or drugs left behind by the patient on discharge.
The hospital and the Pharmacy system is such drugs are given or administered strictly on documentation with respect to its full identity like Name, Batch No and Make.
The concern are:
1, The invaluable drug should not be wasted
2. There should not be double billing on the same stock
3. Pharmacy should not violate the law
4. Hospital cannot purchase these stocks from the patients
I look for a good professional discussion with no sidetracking to come out with an implementable legally acceptable solution.
