Controlled Substances - MDM Risk Table

  • 1.  Controlled Substances - MDM Risk Table

    Hi all,
    Clinic or ED patient gets an RX for an oral controlled substance.  Do you count this as high in the table of risk?  I understand what parenteral is, but I have heard from our providers, and at ED conferences we should be counting these as high.

    What has been your practice?

    Thank you in advance,
    Christina
