Problem

 
 

According to statistics published by RXPatrol, there have been 6,373 documented cases of pharmacy crimes since 2003. Individuals are robbing pharmacies across the country at escalating rates after drugs with street values of as much as $100.00 per pill. At the same time, these same high street value drugs are being diverted (stolen by employees) at an even faster pace. This demand for narcotics has reached a national epidemic and the robberies have become so frequent and violent that we can read about them in the paper everyday. As a result pharmacies are facing very stringent inventory tracking and reporting requirements by the DEA for CII classdrugs.

The Federal law requires that pharmacies account for CII narcotics with a manual perpetual inventory log for every pill acquired and dispensed. The current system used by pharmacies is a handwritten logbook which is time consuming and prone to human error especially during peak dispensing times.

Internal theft from pharmacy employees is also on the rise. The standard locking metal key cabinet has not been sufficient to control accesses to these medications and curb internal theft. Camera systems have also not been able to slow down or control this problem of epidemic proportions. Part of the issue concerning the use of camera systems to control internal theft or diversion is the unrealistic thought of pharmacy staff having & taking the time to review thousands and thousands of hours of recordings to identify employees actively involved in diversion.
