CsRx™ Controlled Substance Waste Service

CsRx™ Controlled Substance Waste Service

All hospitals recognize that controlled substance diversion presents a large risk and have created procedures and policies to prevent diversion from occurring. Stericycle developed the CsRx Controlled Substance Waste Service to enhance existing hospital security procedures to dispose of controlled substances in a safe and efficient manner. Each CsRx container will contain a preloaded deactivating agent and deterrent, which will require water to activate. Once the deactivating agent and deterrent have been activated, the containers are ready for use. The deactivating agent permanently alters the substance’s chemical condition rendering the substance (including pills, patches, tablets, and IV solutions) non-retrievable. Our proprietary containers are designed with a one-way disposal path allowing substances to enter the container but not be removed, preventing any possible diversion opportunities. The unique lid opening is designed to prevent a sharp vial or ampoule from entering the container so that the deactivating agent can interact with the disposed substance. Only our turnkey CsRx Service includes lockable wall brackets at no additional charge. The controlled substance waste will be incinerated at a permitted Stericycle facility. Stericycle’s CsRx Controlled Substance Waste Service can help you safely and securely dispose of controlled substance waste.
