Monday, March 19, 2007 at 2:02:27 PM

The Medical Executive Committee approved a prescriber order form for Prevention/ Reduction of Venous Thrombo-Embolism in Hospitalized Patients. All patients will be screened and categorized for DVT risk level, and the form shows the level and recommended actions to be taken. If the actions arenít appropriate for the patient, the prescriber can document that on the form. Low risk patients will be re-evaluated daily. The form will be piloted and then implemented house-wide. March is DVT Awareness Month.
