PMID:  239595     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
The distribution and control system for controlled drugs at a 500-bed hospital was evaluated. The time requirements of the system for pharmacy and nursing, the drug control procedures used, and the income and expenses of the system were evaluated. It was concluded that the system appears to offer full accountability, but it makes a heavy time demand on pharmacy and nursing. Time requirements could be reduced through a computerized system or by use of a certificate of disposition form that incorporates a charge voucher.
