VSHP- VHHA Joint Statement

04/19/2024 7:26 AM | Steve Glass (Administrator)

Please see attached a joint communication that is being issued by Virginia Hospital & Healthcare Association (VHHA) and Virginia Society of Health-System Pharmacists (VSHP).  The joint communication informs our public and private partners that due to pending DEA and FDA regulations, hospitals and health systems will discontinue the current model of hospital and health system provided pre-filled drug kit exchanges as of November 27, 2024.  Further, after that date, single drug replenishment may be possible only in limited avenues that are able to support the resource heavy and complex infrastructure under the FDA and DEA regulations. 

We remain committed as your community partners to provide assistance at a local or regional level that may be available to ease the transition to a compliant model for all EMS agencies across the state.  This joint communication is part of our efforts to assist in the transition.
