The lack of basic supply chain processes and standards for pharmaceuticals results in the significant loss of the inventory value for expired products that do not qualify for a manufacturer's credit. In addition, the unproductive time required by pharmacy personnel to manage pharmaceuticals in remote locations such as emergency carts, heart and stroke kits and numerous other locations within a hospital is a burden on pharmacy management's attempt in reducing labor costs.
