Good Samaritan Hospital Medical Center’s Pharmacy Department has scheduled a drug “take back” day on Saturday, Sept. 29, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Members of the community can dispose of unused or expired medications in designated bins in the hospital's main lobby.
The hospital held a similar drive this past April.
Drug take backs offer a safe and environmentally friendly disposal program that addresses potential hazards associated with improper management. The program helps protect the natural environment, avoid accidental poisoning and helps prevent against prescription drug abuse.
For further information on the proper disposal of unused or expired drugs, call (631) 376-4444.
