*Utilization of Geo-verification button in ESO: Please begin to press this button for EVERY call, regardless if there is a value in the mileage after importing CAD data. For us to receive Medicare/Medicaid funding, we must have a verifiable mileage that they accept. This is the only current acceptable method that we have as an option. The mileage that is produced from the CAD data alone can be susceptible to wrong values.

*AMIODARONE 150ML INJECTION MEDICATION:  Due to a national shortage and subsequent backorder of the Amiodarone pre loads for the 150ml version we carry, we have been forced to utilize an alternative system. From this point we will be utilizing 150ml/3ml vials (see picture below). You can draw this up in a 3cc twice or utilize a 10ml syringe and put both vials in one before admin to patient.
