My Dad is at Geisenger in Wilkes Barre. He is on a pain patch that is a narcotic. I was shocked to see what the nurse did after she removed the patch. She flushed the patch down the toilet. I questioned her about why they do that. She said all narcotics get disposed of that way. Correct me someone if i am wrong. They don't want the public to flush any medications down the toilet, because it goes in the water systems. I guess narcotics are different!! This nurse told me the state requires they dispose of them that way. I know bigger things are going on in the area with the gas, but i don't understand why these drugs cant be burned, like the law does with other drugs such as marijuana. The state of the state is incompetant and wrong as far as the procedure of flushing these drugs.
