Description:
A 2014 DEA regulation prohibited hospices from disposing of narcotics or even taking possession of medications when the patient dies. However, the regulation allows states to give hospices authority to do this, and some states have begun to pass legislation. PHA hospice members want the state legislature to take action! Join this conference call to share your feedback on how the law should assist hospice staff and families safely dispose of drugs in the home and discuss next steps for legislative action.
