I am look for some evidence based practice to support or not support:
the facilty where I work when a diabetic patient is admitted they forego the pt's home regime and start them on accuchecks ac and hs and novolog premeal.
Some of our patients have never been on insulin before and prior to hospitalization were controlled with oral hypoglycemics. Also some were never doing accuchecks as often as we are doing them in the hospital. If you could point me in the direction of some resources to support this I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks.
