This can be ordered by using the PICC Order-Set only. Single orders are for Interventional Radiology placement.
 

Prescriptions for Vicodin 5/500

You will be prompted for a substitution for NORCO 5/325. This is due to FDA regulating how much acetaminophen can be prescribed. This goes into effect January of 2014, however, most pharmacies are no longer stocking the 5/500 product.
 

When placing consults

After placing the phone call for the consult be sure you place the consult order in Epic.  This will automatically add that patient to the provider list, and make the other clinicians aware of the plan.
