How to make sure your medicine goes straight to your doctor

The best way to keep your prescription drugs in your pharmacy is to store them in the correct lockers and locked safes, says the president of the national pharmacy association.

The national association, which represents more than 100,000 pharmacies in the United States, said on Wednesday that locking pharmacies into secure, tamper-proof lockers is the best way of preventing prescription drug diversion.

“In addition to providing a greater level of security for our customers, locking medications in secure locations ensures that our pharmacy associates and pharmacists are able to safely provide care and ensure the safety of our patients,” said Robert J. Zaretsky, president of America’s Pharmacists Association.
