ISMP published its annual “Top 10” issues on medication errors and hazards. There are many requirements that must be met when the patient is provided their first opioid. This webinar will discuss common errors and hazards related to medication administration.
Also covered will be CDC opioid guidelines, Joint Commission final pain management guidelines, federal guidelines for opioid programs, the opioid epidemic, and required hospital policies and training. The CMS standards on the care of the patient receiving opioids will be addressed, which also apply to critical access hospitals.
This session by our expert speaker Laura Dixon will also cover the ISMP IV Push guidelines for adults and the National Action Plan for ADR prevention related to the opioid recommendations. The CMS final worksheet on QAPI will be covered regarding the tracking of medication administration errors and adverse drug reactions. The CDC's final opioid guidelines are also discussed.
Staff education on the safe opioid use policy is required by CMS and includes an assessment of the patient to determine who will be at risk for an adverse event from the use of IV opioids including PCA. This webinar includes education on the side effects and how to recognize them.
