Meeting JCAHO drug usage evaluation requirements in a small hospital.Hosp Pharm. 1990 May; 25(5):486-8, 492.HP
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.
