Healthcare organizations of all sizes are facing challenges meeting stringent pharmaceutical waste handling standards imposed by healthcare accreditation bodies. Leading accreditation organizations such as The Joint Commission (TJC), Healthcare Facilities Accreditation Program (HFAP) and Det Norske Veritas Healthcare (DNV) have made it clear that appropriate handling of medication waste is critical. In addition, many local municipalities and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency have mandates to minimize the transfer of pharmaceutical waste into ground water. Non compliance can be costly with fines up to $36,500 a day.
