Healthcare Industry Professionals

While DisposeRx packets have traditionally been distributed to patients at the pharmacy counter, more and more healthcare providers—physicians, physician associates, nurses, nurse practitioners, dentists and others—are beginning to realize that they, too, have a role to play in discussing the importance of medication safety. Afterall, prescriptions are generated by providers, so it is essential that they play an active role in educating patients and caregivers about safe storage and prompt disposal.

Hospitals and Health Systems

Healthcare Providers

Physicians and nurses are beginning to incorporate discussions about medication safety and disposal into their conversations with patients and caregivers. In fact, some are adding posters in their exam rooms to encourage patients to ask about medication disposal. Further, physicians are successfully filing claims and billing for the time needed to properly educate patients—especially those who are complex or elderly.

Dentists and oral surgeons historically write a large number of opioid prescriptions and are deeply concerned about the possible long-term effects, especially for their teen patients. As a result, many of them have active disposal programs and provide DisposeRx packets following treatment.
