It's time to re-evaluate your narcotic inventory log

Diversion is an uncomfortable topic to discuss. When we discuss diversion prevention, we're really saying that it's essential to safeguard our healthcare facilities against the very staff who work there- staff we know, trust, and love. But it's an uncomfortable discussion we must have during this ongoing epidemic of opioid abuse and diversion.


JDJ Consulting is committed to preventing diversion in every way possible. We have re-evaluated the controlled substance inventory log sheet that's long been recommended to clients. As we continue to fight against diversion, we continue to adapt and develop new ways to combat this issue.


IF YOUR MAIN COUNT SHEET IS A PERPETUAL DECLINING INVENTORY AND YOU USE A CARRY-OVER LINE, WE NOW RECOMMEND THAT ALL FACILITIES REQUIRE THE SIGNATURES OFTWO LICENSED NURSES ON THECARRY OVER LINEON THE NARCOTIC INVENTORY LOG SHEET.



This revision is not only for the protection of the controlled substance stock, but also for the protection of the staff performing the counts and carry overs.
