All B.C. Pharmacies to Have Time-Delay Safes
With the increase in thefts and robbery in B.C. , the B.C. College of
Pharmacists announced that with immediate effect (Tuesday 15th September), all
pharmacies should now have their drugs in time-delay safes. These kind of safes
are typically used in banks where people keep their valuables. This operates
only after an employee enters a code and it opens only after a few minutes or
sometimes hours have elapsed. All 1200 pharmacies in the B.C Province are
required to store drugs in time-delay safes, a decision taken after reports of
robbery increased over a period of time. As a result of this decision, only a
small number of drugs would be available for daily transactions while a bigger
section will be stored in the safe. History of robberies in the B.C.Province has
shown that robbers are targeting drugs like Metadol, fentanyl, oxycodone,
methadone, codine and others. The College has also pointed out that there has
been a 200% increase in these thefts in the Lower Mainland from 2012 to 2013.
After an analysis, it was also seen that in most cases the robbers just
completed the entire task with 2-3 minutes.
