Beers List

We are preparing for our Leapfrog survey (first one). In such were coming across the need to use Beers List, but have concerns with the amount of alert fatigue it may cause.

Specific questions for those that use it:
1. Do you use what is offered "out of the box" from your EMR? If so which one?
2. Do you treat all settings equally? Hospital, Ambulatory, LTC.
3. How do you reduce the noise to really get at the intended patients? This may be different for each setting.
