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.
