For Controlled Substance drug loss reporting, the Board expects an initial email notification as well as a follow-up/final notification, once the situation is resolved. Resolved means that an internal investigation has been completed and all pertinent details of the drug loss have been identified. Depending on the circumstances, it may also be necessary to notify the DEA.
Submit email notification to email@example.com
