ISMP is extending the deadline date for healthcare facilities to submit their findings for its new self assessment on high-alert medications from December 15, 2017 to February 28, 2018. Each section of the ISMP Medication Safety Self Assessment for High-Alert Medications can be completed and submitted to ISMP separately when ready. ISMP is extending the deadline to ensure that organizations have enough time to participate in the full assessment by evaluating all the categories of high-alert medications used in their facilities. To access the self assessment workbook, go to: www.ismp.org/selfassessments/SAHAM/Default.aspx
