Chemotherapy Premeds

    My practice wants us to approve chemotherapy premedication which I don’t feel comfortable with unless I receive a verbal order to do so or a standing order is in place for the physician.

    How do other practices handle this type of scenario?

    To cover your back, I would contact the ordering physician to ask if they want the pre meds. Document. And then maybe you and your unit could present the reason for the pre meds as EBP?
