Stop Order Policy

William Rickley's picture


I have seen a growing trend for health-systems to extend their automatic stop order (ASO) policy for routine/maintenance medications beyond 30 days.  Some have even elimated ASOs altogether.  This seems reasonable if prescribers are thoroughly reviewing the active med list on a daily basis.  In my experience, this review is not done consistently and/or accurately.  What is the ASO policy at your institution?  I will be happy to compile responses and return to participants in this forum topic.
