I learned from my wife that in her hospital setting, the patient could not supply their own prescription meds. ....If they were brought into the hospital, the staff would confiscate them, and the hospital would supply (and bill) for replacement drugs.
Upon discharge, the confiscated meds would be returned to the patient.
She explained that most hospitals follow this protocol. ....Nursing homes or rehab facilities may, or may not.
