Standing Vaccination Orders

  1. Help oh wonders of the nursing world!!
    We are instituting standing orders for pneumonia and influenza vaccination at our hospital. I have reviewed many examples of standing orders. My question is two-fold......1. Has anyone else started a vaccination program for inpatients...and 2. If so, what is your process?

    I have alot of ideas, and have brainstormed with nurses and pharmacy...but am open to any new thoughts....especially if your program is working well!!!

    At our hospital we ask a patient on admission if they have had their flu or pneumonia shot. If they have not then we can offer it and give it if they agree.
