Physician responsibilities for refilling prescription orders
There are important steps necessary in the procedure for refills of controlled medications.
Medication management of controlled prescription refills require:
- Chart review before every refill
- Patient evaluation
- Possible phone calls to the parent/school
- Review the treatment plan - Every refill.
- Write the precription
- Arrange delivery of the prescription to the parent or guardian
Most physicians do not wish to refill controlled substances without a patient's chart. It is difficult, if not impossible, to responsibly prescribe controlled medications without patient history and documentation.
It is important to have one medical home for your controlled medications. A clear and continuous record of your medication and behaviors is important in your treatment.
