Dear PSA Members,
It has come to my attention and to that of the PSA Board that many of you as a result of your hospital and health organization affiliations, are experiencing difficulties, requirements or questions regarding administration of narcotics in daily standard OR use. We at PSA will be developing a stance on this on March 18. The language of the law appears clear by interpretation of PSA legal counsel that OR and in-patient narcotic orders do not require a data base query. If you have any questions or concerns regarding this matter and your institution, please feel free to contact PSA. We will attempt to address your concerns to the best of our abilities at this time.
