Dear Colleagues,

 

Has anyone developed/implemented  standardized guidelines/order sets for
sedating the agitated/violent/psychotic/ patient and/or "behavioral
emergencies" in the pediatric emergency department-specifically
indications for pharmacologic sedation, pharmacologic options, doses,
routes of administration, and patient monitoring. We are starting to
look at these issues from a medication safety perspective and am
interested in what others are doing/have done.

 

Thank you in advance.

 

Erica
