The appropriate disposal of unused and unneeded prescription drugs can be confusing for many, including health professionals. In addition to dangers associated with the medications getting into the hands of someone other than the person for whom they were prescribed, there are also environmental concerns around the common method of putting them down the drain. “The National Hospice Foundation is pleased that Home Healthcare Solutions will provide educational grants to support education and guidance on safe and effective ways to dispose of these drugs,” said Randy Crump, president and CEO of Home Healthcare Solutions. “Through education provided by NHPCO and a movement toward practice improvement, we hope to collectively achieve a new standard in safety, compliance, professionalism, and environmental stewardship with medication disposal in the patient home.”
