Implementation: December 2nd - Pilot on NT4

On Admission: Nursing will enter the Home Medications in the computer system. A document will be printed out for the provider. The provider updates the document by hand. Each page of the document needs to be signed by the provider

On Discharge: The document is printed again and will include both HOME and ACTIVE INPATIENT medications. The provider updates the document by hand. New orders are added to a blank order form. Nursing updates this information in the computer system. Nursing prints a document for the patient to take home. This list becomes the initial home medication list the next time the patient is admitted.
