New I-STOP Requirement

As required by the NYSDOH, the Prescription Monitoring Program (PMP) registry must be consulted prior to prescribing any controlled substance at discharge.  The law also requires that a note be placed in the patient’s medical record.  You are required to complete the I-Stop section of the Disposition Note.  Please note that the last check box must also be selected if the patient received a controlled substance during the hospital admission.
