2 Procedures #: 2220 Section 2 General Program Standards; E. Medication Page: 1 of 3 Procedures Dispensing of Medications/Storage of Sample Medications Effective 11/6/14 Review 11/6/15 No.: 6060 Name: Billy R. West, Jr., Dispensing of Medications/Storage of Sample Executive Director Medications Effective 6/01/08; ; ; 03/30/11; 4/16/13; 7/3/14 Scope: these procedures apply to all Daymark Recovery Services, Inc. (DAYMARK) outpatient service sites (NOTE: see also Policy #927 Safeguards Regarding Medications and Research) Purpose: DAYMARK service sites may maintain a limited supply of prescription medication samples provided by established pharmaceutical companies for dispensing to indigent consumers. These medications shall be stored in a safe and secure, double locked system accessible only to physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants and registered or licensed practical nurses. Daymark does not dispense any medications other than samples or medications provided through patient assistance programs (PAP) by pharmaceutical companies. Responsibility: all employees designated and trained, licensed and/or certified to provide these services. Process: 1. Receipt and Storage of Prescription medication samples: a. Physicians, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants shall be in contact with pharmaceutical company representatives. They will identify medications typically needed in emergency or gap or starter situations and sign for receipt of the identified medication samples. b. All prescription medications shall be stored in locked cabinets within a locked room, accessible only to DAYMARK physicians, nurse practitioners, registered nurses, licensed practical nurses, or staff trained in state curriculum standards for medication administration in individual cabinets or bins labeled to designate each medication and identifying the strengths, if applicable. c. Only prescription medications samples or PAP medications shall be stored in the designated locked cabinets. Medications maintained by DAYMARK shall be limited to a small supply of emergency medications most typically ordered by our physicians which a. indigent consumers are least likely to be able to afford and/or which are needed most often to use as starter doses and sample medications obtained for specific consumers through pharmaceutical indigent care programs. b. Medications obtained for specific consumers through pharmaceutical indigent care programs shall be labeled with each consumers name and date received, and shall be stored separately from the supply of starter or gap doses. A log shall be maintained of these medications identifying date received, consumer, type of medication, date dispensed to the consumer and the initials of the physician, nurse practitioner, or physician assistant who dispensed the medication to the consumer. c. A separate log shall be kept of sample medications stored for use as gap or starter doses for different consumers, which identifies the date received, type of medication, strengths and number of each received and dispensed. 2. Dispensing of prescription medication samples: a. Unless clinically indicated and addressed through additional procedures, those service sites that do maintain medication samples or PAP, provide all medications directly to the consumer. b. There shall be accompanying orders for each specific medication written by a DAYMARK physician, nurse practitioner or physician assistant, or by a registered nurse and reviewed/confirmed by a qualified prescriber in the consumer s record. c. Medications may be dispensed only by a DAYMARK physician, nurse practitioner, or physician assistant. A registered nurse or other designated staff member may assist in this process. d. Medication samples must be labeled with: date dispensed, consumer name, name and address of the prescribing physician who ordered medication, name of medication, strength of medication, quantity and expiration date of the medication, specific directions to the consumer regarding dosage, times, etc,. e. Medication samples and instructions must be reviewed and approved by the physician prior to the consumer receiving them. When the prescriber is working via telemedicine, the local nurse should physically demonstrate to the prescriber the medication package and content and full content of the label. f. Medication sample instructions must be reviewed with the consumer, including benefits and side effects. g. Documentation is made on a progress note or med call sheet that the prescriber reviewed the samples and labeling provided to the consumer. h. Documentation is made on the designated log regarding date, consumer s service record number, medication and strength and dosage. i. Documentation is made in the service record on the medications orders form or in the e-prescribing system. j. Medications shall be dispensed in tamper-resistant packaging that will minimize the risk of accidental ingestion by children. In the case of unit-of-use packaged drugs, a zip-lock plastic bag may be adequate 3. Utilizing Medicaid prescription benefits and pharmaceutical indigent care programs: a. First priority is to ensure all Medicaid eligible consumers are fully utilizing their prescription medications benefits, including assisting consumers who are eligible in applying for Medicaid benefits. b. Staff, including physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants and registered nurses, shall identify those pharmaceutical representatives who provide free samples of the medications typically used or obtain coupons for frees samples through the same companies. c. Staff shall maintain an up-to-date list of pharmaceutical companies that do have indigent care programs, the contact phone numbers and listing of medications available, and a supply of the required applications, where applicable. d. Consumers who are not Medicaid eligible, do not have a prescription drug plan through their insurance and are unable to afford their prescription medication will be assisted in completing whatever steps are necessary to become eligible for the indigent care programs as soon as possible. Medications samples or coupons may be used in the interim period if the physician believes the consumer needs to start on the medication for symptom relief/control immediately. e. Under no circumstances will medications samples or coupons be used on a continuous, ongoing basis if a consumer is found to be ineligible for Medicaid and for the indigent care programs. f. A tickler system will be used for each consumer who is receiving assistance through an indigent care program to assure continuity is maintained. Training: All employees designated to provide these services shall be licensed, certified or otherwise trained in the practice of evaluating, prescribing, dispensing and/or administering medications and documentation of training shall be maintained in their personnel files. Monitoring: Pharmacotherapy services shall be monitored in accordance with DAYMARK performance improvement criteria. References: APSM 30-1; CARF 2014 Behavioral Health Standards Manual 2
