DURING PATIENT SAFETY AWARENESS WEEK, MARCH 11-17, A-S-H-P AND THE ASHP FOUNDATION ARE SHARING IMPORTANT TIPS FOR SAFELY STORING AND DISPOSING OF YOUR MEDICINES.
CLINICAL PHARMACIST, DR. KALYNN ROHDE:
SUGGESTED SOUNDBITE: “First, take inventory of the medicines currently in your home and pull out anything that is expired, discolored, or crumbling. Next, take the expired medicines to a stationary drop box in your community if available, or ask a pharmacist for help. Finally, make sure you’re storing your medicines safely in an area that is convenient, but is also cool and dry, and lock up your medicines or store them in a high, out-of-reach place if you have children.”
