Ashtons Drugs Liable for Misuse (DLM) Report
In order to improve governance, Ashtons has developed a report of controlled drugs liable for misuse, such as some of the benzodiazepines which are not entered into the controlled drug registers.
Examples include diazepam, lorazepam and clonazepam.
This report will enable managers to check the patterns of ordering and will provide additional safeguards as orders dispatched from pharmacy should correspond to the medication supplies.
The hospital’s Accountable Officer could use this report to provide information their Local Intelligence Network (LIN).
