New Drug Kit Exchange Location at SRMC

Starting Tuesday, August 4, 2015, at 09:00am, the exchange of the ODEMSA Drug Kits at Southside Regional Medical Center will take place in the pharmacy instead of in the emergency department. If you aren't familiar where the pharmacy is, the easiest way to get to it is to exit the double doors of the ED just inside the ambulance entrance. Turn left, and then go down the first hallway to your right. The pharmacy will then be on your right. Ring the bell and let them know that you have a drug kit to exchange.


As a reminder, you still need to include a printed PPCR or MIVT for every exchange. All controlled medication wasting will still be done with an ED nurse, and you must have a signature accounting for the waste, as well as a physician signature for the administration of any controlled substances or any online medical control orders. Please remember to fill out the drug kit exchange card on top of the ODEMSA drug kits.


Pharmacy staff is requesting that only one EMS provider come back to the pharmacy for the drug kit exchange to ensure that the pharmacy area remains controlled.


There may be a few bumps along the way as this process changes; please contact Jeff McPhearson, EMS Liason for SRMC, with any questions or concerns.
