Are Your Printer Paper Trays Secure?

March 16, 2010

I'm starting this blog to learn more about security requirements for paper/forms loaded in printer or copier paper trays and to provide information on how you can keep your printers secure. As a provider of security locks for paper trays we are always looking for new applications for our products. Typical users of paper tray locks are Healthcare providers, higher education facilities, financial institutions, or anybody who wants to keep their printer paper trays securely locked. Here are typical reasons why consumers want to lock their printer trays:

  • Healthcare - as more states and countries enact regulations concerning security and confidentiality, healthcare providers are being required to lock up tamper-resistant prescription paper, HIPPA forms, and any other documents/forms that may be of interest to unauthorized persons.

  • Higher Education - many colleges and universities have printers located around the campus in libraries, study halls, dorms, and other public-accessible locations. This fact makes these printers prime targets for paper theft - students may think "Why should I go buy paper for my printer when I can take paper from the unattended printer sitting in the library?" Might not seem to be much of a problem, but if you have hundreds or thousands of devices in your network and you lose 20, 50, or 100 sheets of paper a day, the losses quickly add up to a substantial amount!

  • Financial - do you keep blank check stock in your printer? No explanation needed here!

Locks are designed to prevent crimes of opportunity. A determined thief with uninterrupted access to your printer can break into any printer given sufficient time. He can even walk off with your printer if it is a smaller model! Printer locks are designed to prevent someone from walking up to your printer, opening a tray, and removing a few sheets for their personal or illegal use. Takes only seconds, but can create big problems for the printer/network manager! Unauthorized persons might be patients in a healthcare facility, cleaning staff at any business, employees who are not authorized to use restricted forms, students, or anyone else who comes into contact with the device.

Do you have experiences with any of these situations? We'd like to hear from you!

What types of forms are you storing in your printer?

If you qualify for a waiver from the Administrative Simplification Compliance Act (ASCA) that requires electronic submission of claims to Medicare (and to some Medicaid State Agencies) you may use CMS-1500 forms to print your claims. CMS-1500 forms are printed in a special red ink called Flint OCR Red, J6983. When claims are printed on CMS-1500 paper only the data appears on the copy - all form fields, headings and lines remain invisible. CMS-1450, also known as UB-04 forms, are also used when you qualify for a waiver to the ASCA and are submitting claims to a Medicare fiscal intermediary and to most State Medicaid Agencies. These forms are not inexpensive, costing $20~$25/500 sheets, so protecting your forms from theft will help keep your operating expenses lower. For additional information visit the US Dept of Health and Human Services website at: http://www.cms.hhs.gov/ElectronicBillingEDITrans/ Forms are available from several suppliers including http://www.papertraylock.com/ and you can call the U.S. Government Printing Office at 1-866-512-1800 and ask for local printers in your area.

Healthcare reform is here!

While many people are rightfully concerned about where the funds will be obtained to pay for the new services, it should create opportunities for many providers to the healthcare industry. With the US Government now more involved at all levels of healthcare, expect to see more regulations concerning security of forms and tamper-proof paper.

UK Requirements for Prescription Paper Security

The National Health Service (NHS) in the UK has published guidelines for handling of security for prescription forms. Guidelines are available for download at the following website: http://www.dhsspsni.gov.uk/pas-security-prescription-forms-guidance-feb08.pdf This document offers a range of measures to help prevent theft of prescription forms and recommended action when a theft does occur.

More Uses for Paper Tray Locks

I was at a customer's office recently discussing how to lock the printer paper trays on several of his machines. While we were talking I noticed a storage cabinet that was open - the locks in the handle were broken and he could not lock the cabinet. First thing I did was slap a PTL paper tray lock on the cabinet and his problem was solved!

Took only a minute.

New Requirements for Securing Passport & Birth Certificate Stock

We have recently heard from state employees from several states around the US about new security requirements for paper stock used to print passports and birth certificates.

Apparently, there have been instances around the country where easy access to birth certificate stock and passport paper stock has allowed unscrupulous employees to engage in illegal activities including selling fraudulent birth certificates and passports.

Many states are now requiring that blank paper stock used to print these legal documents be stored in separate, locked locations. An easy-to-implement solution to meet this requirement is to lock the paper stock in your printers using printer paper tray locks.
Lucas Distribution can provide locking solutions for any printer or copier. Look up your printer model at our website www.papertraylock.com/Paper-Tray-Lock-Printer-Compatibility-Chart.html or contact us at sales@papertraylock.com to find the best locking solution for your printer paper trays!

Florida Department of Health Implementing Phase 1 Inspections of Pain Clinics

In an effort to close down so called "pill mills" the Florida Department of Health is actively inspecting pain clinics throughout Florida. Among the items inspectors are checking are that clinics are using tamper-resistant prescription paper and that ths paper is kept in a secure location.

Secure locations may include a locked cabinet or, more conveniently, a locked printer paper tray. Locking your printer paper trays makes sense - you don't have to remember to remove your prescription paper from the printer every evening and lock it in a cabinet. Simply install a printer paper tray lock on your equipment, load your tamper-resistant prescription paper, and lock the paper tray.

Georgia Law Passed Requiring Approved Security Prescription Paper

On July 1, 2011, O.C.G.A 26-4-80.1 was signed into law requiring that certain Schedule II prescriptions be written on Georgia Board of Pharmacy approved security paper.

The law is scheduled to become effective on October 1, 2011. All paper must be approved by the Board and a new Seal of Approval from the Georgia Board of Pharmacy must be affixed on every sheet of security paper used in Georgia.

Read the new bill at www.sos.ga.gov/plb/pharmacy/Memo%20to%20Pharmacists%20regarding%20security%20paper.pdf

More information on security paper may be found at www.papertraylock.com/TamperResistant-Prescription-Paper.html

Update to Georgia Board of Pharmacy Paper Requirements

On September 22, 2011, the Georgia Pharmacy Board made changes to O.C.G.A. 26-4-80.1 that include a number of clarifications:

Rather than requiring pre-approval by the Board of Pharmacy, vendors may now market and sell paper that meets the criteria in the 3 following areas:

1. One of more industry-recognized features designed to prevent unauthorized copying of a completed or blank prescription form;

2. One or more industry-recognized features designed to prevent the erasure or modification of information written on the prescription form by the practitioner;

3. One or more industry-recognized features designed to prevent the use of counterfeit prescription forms.

If a vendor meets the above criteria and submits samples of the paper to the Georgia Board of Pharmacy along with written notification, they may market and sell paper in Georgia unlss the Board determines that the paper does not meet the requirements listed above.

When a practitioner prints prescriptions there must now be a sequential number printed on each prescription. Practitioners will need to confirm with their software providers how to add the sequential numbering to their prescriptions unless their paper is preprinted with sequential numbers.

In the event paper containing the Board seal, sequential numbering, and lot number is not available for a prescription and a medical emergency exists, the new revision also allows for prescriptions on paper meeting the other requirements for approval, for an amount of medicine to cover not more than 30 days. The prescription must contain a statement that a medical emergency exists. This exception only applies to prescriptions written before December 31, 2011.

The law also requires practitioners to "employ reasonable safeguards to assure against theft or unauthorized use of security paper.." This infers that prescription paper should be secured while in the printer or removed and locked in a cabinet.

Deadline Approaching for Georgia Board of Pharmacy Approved Prescription Paper!

The end of the year is approaching and with it the deadline for using non-approved prescription paper in Georgia.

The new law requiring the use of Georgia Board of Pharmacy approved prescription paper for schedule II narcotics went into effect on October 1, 2011. There is a grace period until December 31, 2011, that allows physicians to write prescriptions on non-approved paper if an emergency exists.

Starting January 1, 2012, approved paper/pads must be used for all schedule II prescriptions.
Healthcare providers should plan now to order custom printed prescription pads and order laser prescription paper that meets the guidelines of the Georgia Board of Pharmacy. It normally takes a week to custom print prescription pads and with the holidays fast approaching there isn't much time left to order pads for delivery this year!

Georgia Board of Pharmacy Extends Emergency Use of Non-Approved Paper

On December 14, the Georgia Board of Pharmacy amended the policy that requires all Schedule II prescriptions be written on approved paper containing the Georgia Board of Pharmacy seal and sequential numbering.

Previously, Schedule II prescriptions could be written on non-approved paper until December 31, 2011, if they were for an emergency. The prescription has to contain a statement that an emergency exists and the prescription cannot be for more than 30 days of medication.

The latest amendment extends the grace period for emergency prescriptions from December 31, 2011 until March 31, 2012. Prescriptions must still be marked for emergency use and cannot exceed 30 days of medication.

Healthcare providers should order approved paper sooner rather than later to avoid the hassle of dealing with non-approved paper for Schedule II prescriptions.

New Universal Fit Refrigerator Lock

We are happy to announce a new style refrigerator lock that will work on most refrigerators with doors up to 4" thick.

The previous model refrigerator locks only worked on refrigerators with doors up to 1.75” thick – essentially limiting their use on mini-type refrigerators.

The new PTL lock works on refrigerators with doors up to 4” thick. The PTL Refrigerator Lock is popular because you do not have to remove padlocks, locking plates or other pieces to open the refrigerator. Simply turn the key and open the door, then shut the door and turn the key to lock. Multiple locks may be ordered keyed alike or differently at no extra cost, making key management simple.

To order locks or obtain additional information go to http://shop.papertraylock.com/Refrigerator-lock-ptl-fridge-lock.htm or contact Lucas Distribution at 866-232-4233.

New Applications for Refrigerator Locks

Our new refrigerator locks are selling beyond our expectations! We are currently backordered on black locks until April 13.

We have learned of new applications for these and our other security locks for the marine industry. Lately we have been receiving requests for locks from marina and boat owners who want to secure items on their boats and do not want to drill holes to mount a lock.

Our locks are mounted using a powerful adhesive and special feet that form an extremely strong bond to most smooth surfaces. If you wish to drill holes you may also attach the locks with screws.

Want to lock your refrigerator or storage locker while you are away from your boat? Use locks from Lucas Distribution to keep your property secure!

Prader-Willi Syndrome, Autistic & Alzheimer's - Dealing With Overeating

People who are coping with family members with Prader-Willi Syndrome, Autism, and Alzheimer's often struggle to keep their family members from eating to excess, one of the traits exhibited by persons with these disorders.  It can be a challenge to prevent family members from going into the refrigerator while keeping it easily accessible to others in the family.

Most refrigerator locks in the market use a padlock and cable system to secure the refrigerator - requires 2 hands to unlock and lock the door.  In fact, we also offer this type of locking system. 

The PTL Refrigerator Lock easily installs with high-strength adhesive, so you do not have to drill holes in your refrigerator.  To use the lock simply insert and turn a key 90 degrees and the door is free to open.  Close the door and turn the key and the door is locked - simple to perform this task with 1 hand.

We can provide multiple keys and we can key multiple locks alike if you have more than 1 refrigerator in your household.

New Combination Paper Tray Lock

New Changes to State of Georgia Security Prescription Paper Requirements

The state of Georgia has repealed the law requiring all Schedule II prescriptions to be written on paper containing security features that included the GA Board of Pharmacy seal as well as having a serial number imprinted on each page.

HB 209 was passed in April 2013 and became effective July 1, 2013.  Under the HB 209 guidelines, "if a prescription is written on security paper that meets Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) standards, any prescribing health care provider can use and accept it."  Read the full article here:


Lucas Distribution will still offer the paper containing the seal and serial numbers, but the standard security paper will also be available at a lower cost.

Our TV wall mounts are equipped with built-in key locks that secure steel plates covering the mounting hardware at the wall and the rear of the TV set.  If thieves cannot access the bolts they cannot remove the TV from the wall.

Mounts are available in 4 models, including Flush Mount, Tilt-Only Mount, Single Articulating Arm and Double Articulating Arm.  Tilt-only and Articulating models allow the monitor to be tilted up to 20 degrees of up or down.  The Tilt-only model allows 13 degrees of swivel right and left while the Articulating models allow the monitor to be swiveled up to 90 degrees.

Mounts are easy to install and come with all required mounting hardware.  TV wall mounts are compatible with TVs that are equipped with VESA mounting studs - your owner's manual will specify the VESA hole pattern for your TV.

All security flat panel mounting systems come with hardware required for installation.   Installation will require the following common household tools: Electric drill with 1/4" bit, Philips screwdriver, Socket wrench with 7/16" & 9/16" sockets, and a level.

Free shipping is included for any mount delivered anywhere in the continental United States.  Shipping outside the continental US will be added to orders.
