State medical boards ?

Count Provider » State medical boards ? 

Hello,

 

I really appreciate everyone's contributions to this thread. It is fascinating and instructive to see the range of opinions and practices about pill/strip counts etc. 

I do unused strip counts, the pts being instructed to bring them in the packaging from the pharmacy so we can see how much was dispensed at the time (some pts pick up partial Rx's due to cost). I guess I put myself somewhere in the middle/muddle: I do think I have some responsibility to the pt and the community to make diversion tougher than it could be. But any 'system' can be beat, admittedly. 

Does anyone have any insight into the attitudes towards this on the part of: 

1. Nationally recognized experts in addiction treatment 

2. DEA agents who may have commented about this during site visits 

3. State medical boards ? 

 

Please help.

 

I didn't find the right solution from the internet.
