Despite the focus on appropriate use of opioids for pain management, many hospitals continue to see adverse events in which patients are injured from unintentional overdoses. To help hospitals prevent patient harm from the use of opioids, ECRI Institute Patient Safety Organization (PSO) conducted a deep dive analysis of adverse events related to opioids in the acute care setting.
The full report, with analysis and recommendations, is available to ECRI Institute PSO members with login; and a PDF report will be available for purchase in the future.
As part of our mission to improve patient safety, we are providing the executive brief, a leadership infographic, and an interactive tool for free download using the form below.
