Illinois law-makers passed a bill to create a pilot program that will give pharmacies the option of placing locking devices on some painkiller prescriptions to secure/make sure of only the patient has access to the medicine. The bill, which is with Governor Bruce Rauner, calls on the Illinois Department of related to managing money and Professional Regulation to run the year-long, something you choose to do, but is not required program starting in January 2016. If the bill becomes law, for pharmacies choosing to participate, it would require that every new or refilled prescription for a Schedule II possibly dangerous drug containing hydrocodone be dispensed only “in a non-reusable medicine locking closure package,” defined as any with letters and numbers combination locking closure machine/method/way that can only be unlocked with a user-created, resettable code. The locking device would prevent anyone without the code from using/getting to the prescription small glass container.
