We've had some debate recently about the best way to enter medication patch orders when multiple patches are required to make a dose (ex: fentanyl 12 mcg + 25 mcg to make 37 mcg). Does your institution prefer one order to account for all patches or separate orders for each patch? What is the rationale?
There are definitely pros and cons to each approach, but I can't seem to find that one is preferred over the other in the literature. Thanks for the help!
