BNE: I-STOP NY Begins August 27, 2013

Nancy Leveille and Karen Morris in Clinical & Quality

Just a reminder that I-Stop NY and the Prescription Monitoring Program, PMP, goes into effect next Tuesday.  Please see member mailing of May 30, 2013 for full information.  Your physicians, nurse practitioners and physician assistants will need an HCS account, if they don’t have one already, to participate in this program. Each SNF should develop a system/protocol for how the PMP will be reviewed before any controlled substance is ordered for residents who are being discharged or going out on pass needing a controlled substance prescription.
