medical standards of practice

  1. 0 Hello - I am looking for a resource for medical standards of practice - either book or online format. I received an advertisement for a text, but cannot find it. Any ideas for a quick reference guide when working cases? Thanks in advance!

    Uptodate is a service that all the docs use and has all the standards.

    I just looked at that "" website. A one-year subscription if $495, 2-year $790. OUCH! Is there anywhere else the SOC can be found? JCAHO website? State Boards of Nursing website?

    Every hospital I am in contact have it on their intranet. Also try a medical library.

    You can also go to each of the Organizations ( American College of Cardiologists) or go to CMS for their standards. National Safety Forum,

    Laywers use Lexis/Nexis which is very expensive, they should pay for your tools for the cases you review.
