Firelands Regional Medical Center Installs a Medication Collection Kiosk.
(March 13, 2019 – Sandusky, Ohio) Firelands Regional Medical Center is proud to announce that they have installed a Medication Collection Kiosk.
In an effort to lessen the misuse and abuse of controlled substances, Firelands Regional Medical Center has installed a Medication Collection Kiosk. This initiative comes in the wake of the ever-increasing use and abuse of opioids in our community. In addition, any patient that receives an opioid prescription drug at Firelands Regional Medical Center, whether for surgery recovery or otherwise, will receive a brochure on the dangers of misusing opioids, and what to do if you may be facing addiction to them.
The Medication Collection Kiosk allows anyone with extra or expired, opioid pills and any other prescription medications, to dispose of them properly, in a private, secure, and safe way. The kiosk at Firelands is located in the hallway after exiting the parking garage, and before you enter the main lobby.
If you or a loved one is dealing with addiction or substance abuse, Firelands Regional Medical Center Counseling and Recovery Services can help. Contact us at 419-557-5177.
