Managing Compliance

Prescription drug overdose is the number one cause of accidental death in the United States. Beyond these tragic deaths, prescription drug abuse causes many more emergency room visits and billions of dollars in medical expenses. Every incident represents a problem and a potential liability.

Identifying risks early helps manage risks associated with overdose and abuse. Armed with better information in a useful form, physicians can help identify abusers and direct them to treatment earlier in the process.

Prescribing or dispensing to an abuser, diverter, misuser or ‘doctor shopper’ puts the provider, their practice and or institution, as well as the patients at high risk.

Although relieving pain and reducing suffering are primary emergency physician responsibilities, there is a concurrent duty to limit the personal and societal harm that can result from prescription drug misuse and abuse.
