This bill requires prescribers, or their authorized designees, to check a patient's prescription monitoring information when issuing a prescription for a Schedule II controlled dangerous substance (CDS) to a patient receiving care or treatment in the emergency department of a general hospital. Currently, prescribers or their authorized designees are required to check a patient's prescription monitoring information the first time the prescriber or designee issues a prescription for a Schedule II CDS to a new patient for acute or chronic pain, and on a quarterly basis thereafter for continuing prescriptions for a Schedule II CDS. The law provides a number of exceptions to this requirement, which include prescriptions issued to patients in the emergency department of a general hospital when the quantity prescribed does not exceed a five-day supply. The bill eliminates this exception and mandates a check of prescription monitoring information for any prescription for a Schedule II CDS issued in a hospital emergency department, regardless of quantity.
