Medication auto-verification in certain hospital areas

Matthew Cook's picture



My organization is transitioning to a new EHR (Epic) next year. In the interest of safety, we have opted to have a pharmacist verify essentially all medications except for small specific list in our PACU.

I am worried about the impact this will have to patient care, particularly in the ER, if there is a significant delay to medication availability. I am also hearing of other Epic customers making this choice and then later regretting it.

Do any of you have any relevant experience with not using auto-verification and how that impacted high-volume units?
