I was terrified the DEA would walk in our doors at any second and it would be on me because I hadn’t resolved everything yet. I seriously lost sleep over it and would have nightmares. I would spend entire days trying to research the best way to manage the controlled substance cabinet, log book, etc. and I always went home feeling like I had gotten nowhere.
The Guide book had every single thing I needed to know all in one place. It told me what we needed to be doing and how to do it. It was easier to read than the articles and websites online, and actually made me feel hopeful that we could get this under control rather than overwhelm me further! Bonus points- I loved the layout and font. It made it more fun to read!
I expected the guide book to be something I read once and then never looked at again, or something to reference on occasion. But the second I got the book I sat down and read the entire thing and began highlighting and taking notes on all the pages. It seriously felt like I could breathe easier again, and like there was a light at the end of the tunnel! I felt motivated to tackle controlled substance management, I truly felt like I understood what I was reading and I actually excited to jump in and get started!
We have a paper log book as well as our electronic version. It’s up to date and has all the needed info logged every time. I have a schedule to count the controlled substances every other week, and we’re not having any miscounts! I have a Controlled Drug Guideline summary sheet the doctor’s reference when handling controlled drugs, so we are always following the rules, and I don’t lose sleep at night or have nightmares anymore! I still reference the guidebook almost weekly. It’s my favorite resource, and now I’m looking into the other Veterinary Care Logistic products I can utilize!”
