avoids infusion rates that require unnecessary calculations (e.g., 600 mL over 8 hours vs. 75 mL/hour), Expresses electrolyte doses and additives to IV compounded products in a manner that matches the pharmacy and/or compounder order entry system, Uses rounded medication doses whenever clinically feasible according to the organization’s policies (e.g., doses of chemotherapy greater than 10 mg rounded to whole number doses;

for example, acetaminophen doses do not allow more than 3 to 4 grams per day (by frequency of individual products or in combination with other products); total doses of all opioids limit the potential for toxicity if each is given as often as prescribed, Excludes potentially dangerous combinations of analgesics (e.g., IV morphine and epidural HYDROmorphone/bupivacaine on the same order set, with boxes that allow both orders to be activated), Includes the mg/kg dose (or mg/kg/hour, mcg/kg/min, or similar weight-based dosing formula) and the total calculated dose or a prompt for the prescriber to calculate and enter the total dose, Excludes potentially inappropriate medications for this population (e.g., Beers criteria), Provides online access of order sets to print in small quantities to avoid making repeated copies from existing copies, Limits the number of copies on clinical units to a 1-month supply to ensure that older order sets are not used after revision; for online order sets, copies are not printed before needed and stored on clinical units, Includes page numbers (e.g., page 1 of 2), A prompt for prescriber’s signature, printed name, and beeper or phone number (and ID number, if required) which is consistent with the standard format, Sufficient space to clearly activate desired orders (e.g., adequate space between check boxes to prevent intended check mark from marking more than one box; between orders that must be circled to activate), Sufficient space above, below, and between “fill in” prompts to prevent crowding of entries and avoid stray marks from interfering with other “fill in” prompts, Lines on the back copies of order forms if carbonless (NCR-no carbon required) paper forms are used (NCR forms are not recommended if orders are faxed or scanned to pharmacy;
