ieMR System Improvement - changes to prescription of medication with multiple routes

Multiple Routes of Administration Practice Change coming soon to ieMR

Later this month, a significant practice change will be implemented in ieMR, relating to the prescription of medication with multiple routes of administration. Following the change, staff will no longer be able to use the special instructions field on the order.

A go-live date is yet to be confirmed, but to help prepare for this change prescribers should now prescribe medication with multiple routes of administration via a separate order for each route of administration on the MAR. It is important that staff are aware of this change and check for multiple orders to ensure the maximum dose of a medication is not being exceeded.
