Patient Safety: Medication Disposal Guide

Tuesday, June 27, 2017
Medications play an important role in treating patient conditions and diseases; however, when they are no longer needed or they expire, it's important to dispose of them properly to avoid potential harm to others. Unused or expired medications left in the household could get into the wrong hands and have, unfortunately, become the target for misuse and theft. Endorsed by the Michigan State Medical Society, the Medication Disposal Guide, was created by the Michigan Pharmacists Association, MHA Keystone Center, and Michigan Department of Environmental Quality. You may download and share with your patients.
