Every day, millions of Americans start their mornings the same way: with a handful of prescription pills. In fact, nearly a third of all adults take five or more medications regularly. In senior living communities, the number is even higher: a staggering 12-14 medications per day. This is due in part, to a concept known as the ‘prescribing cascade.’ In this webinar, you will learn:
- How to manage risk that arises due to the ‘prescribing cascade’ that is common in senior living settings
- Where medication errors are likely to occur, and how to prevent them
- How EHR and eMAR can be used to cut down on risk and improve oversight of medication administration
