Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Our hospital successfully implemented a drug review program which met JCAHO standards. This was accomplished by analyzing our current situation to identify opportunities for improvement and then developing a drug review plan consistent with JCAHO requirements. The establishment of a DUE pharmacist to coordinate the program and the cooperation of the medical staff has been crucial to the success of our program.
