Palliative home carers are sloppy with medication

Narcotics for palliative care are in principle parked in a “suitcase” at the pharmacy with guard duty.

In this way, every terminal patient who has an acute need for painkillers or symptom-prevention drugs, or for palliative sedation, can be helped by the on-call service.

After every shift, the suitcase is picked up by the wholesaler, who will fill it up if necessary. Only in four of the 15 networks is the suitcase still in use, it turns out. Most networks have developed their own alternatives, but Van Dyck has some questions about this.
