DEA Drug Logging Self Quiz




Does this sound familiar in my clinic? Yes or No
We keep a unique record of every single bottle, box, or vial of controlled drugs starting the day we receive it
When we log our controlled drugs, it’s clearly indicated which container we took the drug from
Our drug logs are written down in a timely manner with any adjustments made accurately reflected in the running balances (Do you see any post-its sticking out the logbook?)
Adjustments made to any particular drug log entries are documented with sufficient reason, and are signed and dated
When we finish drug containers, we’re fairly confident if we look back, the logs detailing the usages associated with the containers will balance to 0
Any non-patient related log adjustments made to a container, such as zeroing out a finished container or expiration waste, have 2 signatures
While calculating running balances on containers, we're confident simple math errors are not being made
We believe the records are clear and easy to read if someone is reading them for the first time

We love VetSnap, it was easy to learn and easy to reconcile. The time it saves from actual paper logs is amazing! My staff is able to be utilized much more in the capacity of Licensed Technicians instead of being tied to the log book for a few hours/week. We LOVE it!!
