You will always find that professionally qualified medical practitioners within the health service industry are well aware of the fact. If they are not entirely vocational from a visible point of view, you should know that this is how they have been indoctrinated to operate. Because no area of the health services industry can afford to forego essential housekeeping and risk management procedures. Any tampering or breach thereof could place vulnerable persons at severe risk. Whilst there have been historical failures in the past, large scale pharmaceutical companies concerned with the design and manufacture of their essential product lines are well aware of the importance of always keeping in mind and observing the legislated medical packaging requirements.
Now, whether you are a small business operator or medium sized operator within the retail and/or wholesale space, you should always keep in mind and be fully aware of the packaging requirements. While it is legislated thus and professional packaging companies are handling the goods if you will, you should never take their essential services for granted. If medical goods are packed in your warehouse or on your shop’s shelves, you should go the extra mile by exercising a little vigilance in the manner that you act as a trusted custodian of important medical appurtenances and non-prescribed medicines.
Take it upon yourself to conduct random checks to ensure that no expiry dates are exceeded, and if you do notice any such slippages, do notify the relevant authorities and entrusted packaging companies as soon as possible. Rest assured, however, that if all such significant goods are being professionally and properly managed then such slippages will be very few and far between. So this task of your is not asking too much of your business.
