Streamline Med Profiles for Patients in Isolation
COVID-19 will put focus on streamlining med administration...to reduce nursing exposure and save personal protective equipment.
Hold nonessential meds. This may reduce med passes...and possibly the use of home meds, which could be contaminated.
Create or expand a policy to automatically hold certain meds on admission. Consider including meds such as bisphosphonates, overactive bladder meds, SGLT2 inhibitors...plus vitamins and supplements.
