Each year, serious adverse events, including fatalities, are associated with the use of IV opioid medications in hospitals. According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, an estimated one-third of all hospital adverse events are related to Adverse Drug Events (ADEs), affecting approximately 2 million hospital stays and prolonging the length of hospital stays by approximately 1.7-4.6 days.
This program will cover the revised standards on safe opioid use, IV medication, blood transfusion, ISMP IV Push guidelines for adults, National Action Plan for ADE Prevention related to the opioid recommendations, CDC opioid guidelines, and federal guidelines for opioid programs.
Our expert will discuss required hospital policies and training so your staff can accurately assess patients to determine who will be at risk for an adverse event from the use of IV opioids, use tools to monitor patients, recognize side effects, and document every information.
