ED med review by Pharmacy 1st?Dear Colleague:
Your response to the JCAHO survey dealing with pharmacist first-dose review of non-urgent medications administered in the ED is URGENTLY needed. Despite ENA's efforts along with colleague organizations AAEM and ACEP, we have been unable to convince JCAHO of the lack of necessity for its Proposed Revisions to the Medication Management Standards MM 4.10. ENA believes the JCAHO revisions are not evidence-based and that they will overburden the ED and compromise patient care.

Background information on ENA's position can be accessed by clicking here.
The survey deadline is January 24, 2007. Please act today!
