REMS for inpatients

How are facilities addressing the ISMP recommendations for REMS? It was mentioned twice in the recent Action Agenda. In our hospital we are mostly continuing what has already been prescribed somewhere else for these specific meds... so they are not being prescribed brand new. Would the REMS still apply? The opioid one is the only one that we would be starting patients new on... but, I don't see where anything is "required" there. Would love some clarification on this if anyone knows. Thank you so much!
