New and Updated PPOs


This is to inform all RQHR practitioner staff that the following new and revised/updated PPOs were made available for use on the PPO intranet site, during the month of November. 

The new PPOs are as follows:

PP-589 Pediatric IV Therapy in Community Settings
PP-591 IV Therapy in Community Setting – Adults
PP-592 Practitioner Admission Orders Regina Pioneer Village
PP-593 HIV Point of Care (POCT) and Stat HIV Testing Labour & Birth
PP-596 Treatment of Staphylococcus Aureus Bacteremia (SAB)


The revised or updated PPOs are as follows:

PP-041 Hemodialysis – Erythropoietin Darbepoetin Administration
PP-269 Medicine Admission Orders
PP-283 Captopril Renal Challenge
PP-298 Furosemide (Lasix®) Renal Scan Adults
PP-318 Sentinel Node Mapping (Breast/Melanoma)
PP-495 NICU Initiation and Advancement of Feeds
PP-496 NICU Total Body Cooling with Criticool
PP-531 Pediatric Critical Hypoglycemia

The purpose of this is to ensure that all areas are using the most updated versions of the PPOs, that are approved in our Region.  If your area is batch printing PPOS, it is important to take note of these, to ensure that old PPOs are removed and new ones are put in their place and are ready for use.

These, and all PPOs, may be found on the RQHR intranet PPO site: http://rqhweb/xpreprintedorders/ppohome.aspx

Please feel free to contact me if you are unable to find a PPO or are looking for guidance in developing a PPO.
