medical standards of practice
Jan 7, '09
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 "Uptodate.com" 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.

Thank you for your response. I'll look into it and see what I can get to get started. Thanks again!
