PROVIDER DIET ORDER CHANGES: Changes to the Epic system to allow only one active diet order at a time.
• This does not prevent providers from entering multiple diet orders, If they enter future start times for additional diet orders to be carried out in the future. Each diet order will release & become active 15 minutes prior to the set start time and effectively discontinue the existing diet order.
• If a provider signs multiple diet orders at the same time, without specifying future start times for the future diet orders, only one will remain active and all others will be discontinued.
• The caveat to this is that this does not apply to supplement orders starting 9/8, because it is our understanding that providers need the ability to order a supplement (potentially multiple at any given time) in addition to a primary diet.
• Existing orders on currently admitted patients will not be affected until a new diet order is entered in Epic. When a NEW diet order is placed on patients admitted prior to 9/8/15, all pre-existing diet and supplement orders will effectively be discontinued. If the supplement(s) or diet order(s) need to remain active, you will need to RE-ORDER them.
