Inspection Focus on Medication Management


The surgery center must store medications according to manufacturer’s recommendations.  Are you checking the temperature of your medications refrigerator once a day?  You must show evidence that you are monitoring the temperature.  Gone are the days of freezing a cup of water and sticking a penny on top of it to monitor the temperature along with using that old-fashioned thermometer. The digital thermometer helps you monitor the temperature on an ongoing basis and is designed with an alarm that will beep if the set temperature fluctuates.  You stick the probe on the inside of the refrigerator and attach the monitor on the outside so you can keep track of the temperature throughout the day.

Here’s to your success,
