Policy for Antipsychotic Use

  1. Does anyone have a policy for the use of antipsychotics? I just finished reviewing the surveyor guidelines on antipsychotics and apparently we need a policy.

    Make sure you also take a look at your state mental health code.

    We worked with the Administrator and Medical Director to come up with a policy for antipsychotics. I got a D and an E this year for them, partially because our E.M.R. does not organize targeted behaviors the way the surveyors wanted it to. Go figure, but- it did get us thinking about a better policy. Are you referring to when to use them, how often, and when to do GDR? Or all?
