Roles and Responsibilities for Medication Reconciliation

  • ADMISSION

    • Physicians document home medications in Med Profile Tab by placing a “Medication Reconciliation” order or through an Admission or Post-OP Order Set; if home meds already there, confirm accuracy of home med list

    • Nurses verify home medications with patient, add any new information to the med profile, reconcile home medications with inpatient orders and document all information above in the Nursing – Medication Reconciliation PowerForm

    • Pharmacists reconcile home medications with inpatient orders and document in the Pharmacy – Medication Reconciliation PowerForm

    • Note: For ICU patients, ICU pharmacists will perform medication reconciliation – Steps 2 and 3.

  • TRANSFER

    • All Physiciansplace a “medication reconciliation order” at transfer. This order signifies that the physician has reviewed the current medications and reconciled with patient’s home medication list in Med Profile Tab.

    • In ICU, ICU Pharmacists reconcile home medications with current medications upon transfer in and transfer out of the ICU

  • DISCHARGE

    • Physicians place a “Discharge – Medication Reconciliation Order” and update the patient’s home medication list prior to discharge

    • Physicians can insert home medications from the Med Profile Tab into the Discharge Summary and Discharge Instructions (Please confirm medication list is translated into patient-friendly language i.e., change BID to 2 times a day)

    • Physicians communicate the most current medication list to next care provider and give patient updated home medication list in patient friendly language

    • Nurses complete discharge note and verify updated home med list has been given to patient and is consistent with discharge instructions

Medication Reconciliation

National Patient Safety Goal #8: To accurately and completely reconcile medications across the continuum of care.
