At Lurie Children’s narcotics are on our high alert medication list and therefore always have a double check of the dose/concentration and requires a co-signature in our EHR (each and every time).

This message has been cross posted to the following Discussions: Outpatient Staff Clinic Issues and Inpatient Staff Hospital Issues . ——————————————- Does your institution have a double check policy on Narcotics? If so does it include a 2 RN check on all doses of narcotic analgesic doses or specific to new orders or change in dosage? Also please specify if utilizing an EMR. Thank You,
