ED Pharmacist Role within Medication Use Process


Would anybody be interested in sharing policies or procedures around their ED pharmacists' roles and responsibilities as it relates to the medication use process in the Emergency Department?

Interested in information about their roles as it pertains to both trauma and non-trauma situations; preparation of medications with orders and medications removed from ADC on override, as well as the hand-off process when pharmacy obtains med from ADC and/or draws up for administering end user.

Thank you,
