How to Handle Medication Logging and Destruction for the Strip Packed Medications

There have been questions about how to log and destroy the new strip package medications. What to do when they are discontinued, expired, or left in the facility. For your convienience, we have provided a link to the policy and procedure below. Please note, when affixing the strip package to the drug destruction log sheet, be sure to only place four (4) packages per log sheet. Review the information to be sure that all pertinent information required is legible. If necessary, the nurse may need to record the information by hand on the sheet.
