What's the best way to keep track of expiration dates on drugs?


Mandy Stevenson
"Make the most of your prescription-tracking software," says Mandy Stevenson, RVT, a Firstline board member and a technician at Belton Animal Clinic and Exotic Care Center in Belton, Mo. First, train team members to maintain the database to reflect your pharmacy's contents. Designate one team member to inventory prescription deliveries and record each expiration date on the corresponding invoice. Another team member can record the invoice details, including expiration dates.

Stevenson urges running a report detailing your pharmacy's contents and drug expiration dates every three to six months. Highlight rarely used drugs and set up a reminder to check their expiration dates twice a year.
