Safe Rx®LPVsTM represent the first significant improvement to secure packaging for prescription dispensing since 1970, when the Poison Prevention Packaging Act established child resistant standards. Prescription vial security has lagged the development of highly addictive opioid medications in the intervening period, and today prescription drugs are both the leading cause of accidental death and the number one gateway to heroin, with pilfering – taking a few pills at a time in secret – from family medicine cabinets the number one source for teen abuse.
Safe Rx® LPVs™ won the prestigious Product Showcase Award in the pharmacy supplies and equipment category at the National Association of Chain Drug Stores’ 2017 Total Store Expo, the largest pharmacy industry trade show in North America.
