CVS now using delayed safes

Posted
CVS Pharmacy has announced it has completed the rollout of time delay safes in all of its 169 pharmacies in Tennessee.
The safes will help prevent pharmacy robberies and combat the ongoing opioid epidemic in the state by helping to prevent diversion of controlled substance narcotic medications by keeping them out of the hands of unauthorized individuals.
In addition, the safes will help CVS Pharmacy ensure the safety and well-being of its customers and employees.

 Controlled substance narcotic medications that are sought after by robbers, such as oxycodone and hydrocodone, are now stored in time delay safes in every CVS Pharmacy in the state of Tennessee. Time delay safes help deter pharmacy robberies by electronically delaying the time it takes for pharmacy employees to be able to open the safe.
