A Call to Action on Hospital Drug Diversion

Becton, Dickinson and Company (BD)

Health care workers are not immune to the crisis. Hospital drug diversion, when a health care worker diverts opiates and other controlled substances away from patients for personal use or sale, remains a significant, and largely underdiscussed, challenge. Left undetected, diversion can imperil patient safety, harm diverters and generate significant risks for hospitals.
