    See if you can set up auto refill with the pharmacy. Maybe create a calendar and share it with the responsible party and only order meds on a 15 day supply...or only refill every 5th of the month.

    I created a weekly audit and divided the outside pharmacy meds between 1st and 2nd shift. We didn't run out of meds as much when someone was held accountable for a res being out of meds.
