Question:

In the regs, § 8:43A-9.5 Storage of drugs it says, (d)  All drugs in Schedule II of the Controlled Dangerous Substances Acts and amendments thereto shall be stored in a separate, locked, permanently affixed compartment within the locked medication cabinet, medication room, refrigerator, or mobile medication cart.
Schedule 2 = Fentanyl, Percocet, Dilaudid etc.
What do I do with Schedule 3-5 = Versed, Ativan, Valium, etc.

Answer:

All schedule 2 controlled drugs must be stored in a separate, locked, permanently affixed compartment within the locked med cabinet, med room, refrigerator, or mobile med cart.  In other words, they must be kept separate from Schedule 3-5 controlled drugs.
