Workers Hard To Find … Clean –
May 7, 2018 – Walmart is making its opioid policy more strict, limiting the duration of such prescriptions and requiring that they be filled electronically. The company announced on Monday that within 60 days, it will only fill first-time acute opioid prescriptions for seven days or less nationwide, and it will limit the dosage to 50 morphine milligram equivalents, or MMEs, per day. The CDC publishes MME conversion guides to help pharmacists figure out the right dosage for each type of prescribed opioid. There are more than 5,300 Walmart (WMT) and Sam’s Club locations in the United States.
