Drug Diversion - Common Occurrence in Home Care

Recognizing Drug Diversion in Health Care - Annual Training 

Drug diversion is a growing concern in healthcare facilities. Diversion occurs wherever controlled substances are stored or handled. The signs of diversion are often subtle and many healthcare providers believe that people they know could never divert. Recognizing the signs of diversion is crucial to preventing diversion and protecting patients from harm when they are denied needed analgesia or cared for by impaired providers.
