Long-Term Care Pharmacies

The waste challenges long-term-care pharmacies address are varied and often challenging. Everything from discontinued and returned medications, to broken or damaged products, to HIPAA issues and more can affect your pharmacy’s compliance status.

At Waste Management’s PharmEcology® Services, we are committed to helping long-term-care pharmacies address the federal and state compliance regulations that apply to pharmaceutical waste. 

Our PharmE® Inventory Analysis and patented PharmE® Waste Wizard® were developed to help you identify hazardous pharmaceutical waste and quickly find out how to properly segregate and dispose of it. Both tools are simple to use, and are a strong foundation for your pharmaceutical compliance program.

Institutional Pharmacies

The need to protect the environment is one of the most pressing issues of our time. There is growing concern about the method pharmacies – including institutional pharmacies – are using to dispose of pharmaceutical waste, along with increased scrutiny of pharmacies from government regulators at the federal and state levels.
