Abstract

Universal precautions for opioid safety, analogous to universal precautions for infection control, is one approach to managing the epidemic of prescription pain medication misuse that has been used in pain clinics, primary care practices, and in some hospices. In this project, a set of hospice-appropriate universal precautions was designed, drawing on hospice nursing strengths, and implemented in a midsize hospice agency.
