Anticipating and Preventing Adverse Drug Events from Opioid-related Complications
2:30pm - 3:30pmMonday, February 11
Orlando - Orange County Convention Center
Opioid administration in hospitalized patients too often harms those the medication is intended to help. In particular, there is evidence of the oversedation requiring naloxone for rescue. In this presentation, Sparrow Health System will share how pain-resource nurses drove the implementation of an opioid risk assessment tool as part of the nursing workflow to prevent opioid-induced respiratory depression and decrease the use of naloxone.
Identify the key elements required to develop a robust MOSS (Michigan Opioid Safety Score) which includes health risk assessment, respiratory rate, and other clinical assessments
Outline how to design an IT-enabled nursing workflow using standard processes for nursing documentation to capture the data elements required to generate a MOSS score and populate clinical decision support and ordering
Analyze how to incorporate unit level reporting tools to drive MOSS assessment compliance by the nursing staff
Outline how to generate a risk for respiratory depression care plan for patients with high MOSS scores to help prevent the need for rescue and promote timely intervention when rescue is necessary
