Reducing Antipsychotics: A System-Based Approach
In conjunction with one of our skilled nursing partners, TeamHealth worked to reduce long-term antipsychotic usage in several partner facilities. The keen understanding and evaluation on the appropriate use of antipsychotic medications has helped many of our partners achieve reduced antipsychotic medication distribution rates.
In facilities across Virginia and North Carolina, teams achieved well-below-national averages for antipsychotic medication distribution.
