“It is important to safeguard medicine in the home. Safe storage and disposal of medications diminish opportunities for inappropriate access. We are here to serve our community and promote safety by helping our neighbors dispose of unused medications properly.” said Billy Chow, VP of Pharmacy for Bartell’s.
The program accompanies Bartell’s standard operating procedures and guidelines related to the receiving, storing, dispensing and record-keeping of controlled substances at Bartell’s. In addition to abiding by controlled substance policies put in place by the DEA, Bartell’s has also taken measures to discontinue sales of promethazine codeine at all pharmacies.
